Designing Sustainable Communities for Living and Learning


University Housing runs a recycling program in 26 residence halls for over 6,000 residents. We hope recycling in your residence hall is easy and convenient so it can become a routine part of your day. It takes only a couple of minutes to recycle, but it will have a profound effect on our use of natural resources. For a quick way to know what and where to recycle, view our Room Recycling Guide.
