The Campus Environmental Center is located in the Student Services Building (SSB 1.302). Here you’ll find students involved in all sorts of sustainable activities, whether environmental outreach, gardening, water, or recycling initiatives. There is also a library of sustainability and green living-themed books and movies that students can borrow. The Campus Environmental Center is the place to be if you want to be connected to the heartbeat of UT Sustainability.
The Green Fee augments UT Campus Environmental Center funding by adding student employment positions. The Green Fee funded a Graduate Program Assistant, who focuses on providing assistance to the programs and initiatives for the organization. The Green Fee has additionally supported Orange Bike program assistants (prior to their move to Parking & Transportation Services), Concho Community Garden staff, and Tailgate Recycling Team Leaders.
These students have greatly increased the amount of student involvement in sustainable student initiatives and have created groups that are actively bettering the campus and Austin through environmental initiatives.
