Green Living

Residential Life has long been at the forefront of promoting green campus living at the University of Rochester. ResLife was first to begin conversion to CFLs and employs energy saving lighting systems throughout its halls. Showers have been retrofitted, dripless faucets installed , water fountains are equipped with bottle refill spouts, and front loading washers are in place to foster water conservation. Reuse and recycling programs collect and process old furnishings, electronics, materials and metals. For more information on UR green living contact Randy Poole at
