Starting in 2016 and driven by our commitment to sustainability, the college has deployed dozens of filtered water bottle filling stations across campus.

Situated in every residence hall, and all major academic and student life buildings, the stations include both a bottle filling option and a standard water fountain. Additionally all residential houses, too small for a water fountain, have water filters installed in their kitchens.  Funding for the stations came from donors, student government, and the college’s general budget, reflecting our shared commitment to this priority.

In the past two years, the stations have helped avoid usage of over 1 million disposable water bottles! Below is a list of their locations across campus.
