Cornell College is committed to promoting sustainability in the residence halls.  There are several options for students to live green.


There are recycling locations in each residence hall.  Students are encouraged to recycle everything that can be recycled. 

Facilities improvements

Cornell College is regularly making sustainable improvements to the residence halls and other campus buildings. These include things like high efficiency windows and doors, extra insulation in exterior walls, high-efficiency gas furnaces, low water use toilets, and high-efficiency gas water heaters. 

Facilities issues

If you encounter a window that won't close, a leaky faucet, or other concern affecting energy usage, contact your RA.  Your RA will notify the appropriate staff member so that the issue can be fixed.

Dining on campus

Dining Services has made sustainability a priority. Use of locally-sourced food when possible, the constant availability of vegetarian and vegan options, and tray-free dining are just some of the existing initiatives found in the Hilltop Café, and more are introduced regularly as the staff continue to build a more sustainable program. Refer to Dining Service's webpage for more information.
