Sustainability seeks to provide the best outcomes for individuals and the natural environment both now and into the future.
University Housing at UGA works diligently to reach the sustainability goals as outlined in the University of Georgia Campus Sustainability Plan. University Housing has incorporated the principles of sustainability into the department's daily operations. In addition, University Housing strives to increase environmental awareness among students and staff as well as promote a sustainability community by example and through education of residents.
There are four primary ways by which University Housing demonstrates its commitment towards sustainability efforts - educational programs and campaigns, water and energy conservation efforts, recycling and other conservation efforts, and maintaining a healthy living environment.
