Sustainability is an important part of the undergraduate and graduate living and learning experience. Peer-to-peer outreach and education campaigns encourage students to test out their creative sustainability solutions and to take individual action to support Harvard's sustainability commitment. Green technology and sustainability have also become key considerations for the historic renewal of Harvard's undergraduate houses.

There are many ways for students to lead a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle while living on campus. Some of the most important actions students can take include:

  • Reusing during move-in and move-out.
  • Shutting down before leaving for vacation.
  • Eating healthy and creating less food waste in the dining halls.
