Does the institution have sustainability-themed housing (residential floor or hall, or theme house) where residents learn about sustainability together and to which residents must apply?:

A brief description of the themed housing:

Sponsored by the Department of Housing and Residence Education and the Division of Student Affairs, this unique community strives to educate leaders for a global community. The goal of the Global Living Learning Community is to help residents become citizens of the world by bringing the world into this community through intercultural awareness, music, art, language, faculty-led discussions, and an introduction to a variety of campus, community, and global resources. Global Community residents are presented with numerous opportunities to explore current world events and international perspectives as they prepare to be part of the greater Gator Nation.

Yulee Hall is the pilot residence hall for all housing and residence life sustainability programs and staff work closely with the Office of Sustainability on porgramming throughout the year
