UA Housing & Residential Life is committed to sustainability—so much so that we have a full-time Senior Coordinator of Sustainability Operations & Initatives who develops and promotes sustainable education and programs in our dorms!
Some of Our Programs Include:
BATTLE OF THE UTILITIES
The dorms compete to see who can reduce their utility consumption (electricity and water) to win prizes and bragging rights. [Occurs late in the fall semester]
The dorms recycle and attend education programs to earn points and win glory and prizes for their dorm. [Occurs at the beginning of the spring semester]
We join the international celebration that encourages you to turn off your lights for an hour. Since you can’t use candles in the dorms, we throw an electricity-free party on the mall with good food, good fun, and fire dancers! [Occurs during the spring semester]
DODGE THE DUMPSTER
Can’t (or don’t want to) take your stuff home? Donate what you no longer need to our non-profit partners so those items can be reused instead of trashed. [Occurs in May]
Have you wondered what kind of difference it makes on your electricity bill if you forget to turn your lights off? Our amazing software helps you see how much electricity you are using each month and what you can do to make a difference. The software works for a dorm room, office or apartment.
Are you excited about sharing sustainability with others? Join Eco-Reps to expand your leadership and advocacy skills by learning more about sustainability and sharing that information with others in your dorm. Learn more by watching the video:
