Green Residence

Help Campus Housing go green!

Two Green Residence Ambassadors at a booth in residence, holding up pledge stickers and with sustainability promotional materials on the table in front of themStudents have an incredibly important role to play in making the University of Waterloo a more sustainable campus. To support students in this journey, we've launched the Green Residence program in partnership with Campus Housing. 

Throughout fall 2020, our ambassadors took part in weekly discussions on a range of sustainability topics to build knowledge and reflection on opportunities within residence. In winter 2021, our ambassadors continued to participate in biweekly discussions, and also supported the following initiatives. Learn more about their impact in the dropdowns below! 

  • Warm clothing donation drive in CLV and UWP
  • Organics collection pilot in UWP
  • Virtual Earth Hour event

Stay tuned for details on fall 2021 programming!
