ER-T2-4: Themed Housing
Associate Vice President of Business Services/Community Engagment
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:
During the summer of 2008, Facilities Services completed a comprehensive green renovation of a campus student residence that needed upgrading. We received a LEED gold certification for this house. The university is using this residence as an ongoing sustainability themed residence (similar to other types of themed residences). Each year students apply to live in the Live Green House where they are called upon to collaborate with tours of their house and host their own sustainable programming endeavors.
