Sustainability in the Residence Halls

In every step Residential Living takes with our halls, the department examines the environmental impact each decision will have.
 
From our roof-top solar panels to our recycled content backing on our halls’ carpet tiles, each purchase and effort is put to the “sustainability test.”

The Greenest Resident Room focuses on displaying and utilizing environmentally-friendly products, demonstrating how students and the general public can live an affordable and eco-friendly life. 

The S.U.N. (Students United for Nature) committee provides learning and social opportunities for residents to learn more about being earth-friendly.  Established in 2010, consists of UWSP residence hall green advocates, Residential Living green associate, Greenest Resident Room ambassador, and Cindy VonGnechten (Residential Living facilities designer).

The Suites@201 received LEED NC-Gold Certification in November 2012.  Click here to read the case study submitted by the project's architectural firm.  For information on a guided tour of the Suites@201 emphasizing its sustainable aspects, contact Cindy Von Gnechten, facilities designer, Residential Living.

UW-Stevens Point, as a whole, is at the forefront of sustainability efforts.  More information on the university’s efforts can be found here.
