Created through student initiative, the EcoHouse provides a unique living and learning experience for four junior or senior students. Residents of the EcoHouse work together to reduce their environmental impact and to engage the campus and broader community on sustainability issues through personal choices, projects and events.
The EcoHouse comes fully furnished with four private bedrooms, two on the main floor and two in the basement. It has a full kitchen with energy-efficient appliances. The laundry room has a washer, dryer and clothesline.
Students are billed for their housing costs on a monthly basis rather than a full semester charge like other campus housing. Additionally, students are responsible for their monthly water and electric bills so that they can see the impact of their choices.
Students interested in living in the EcoHouse must complete a short application, including a personal statement outlining their interest in this unique living environment. Applications are due every January for the following academic year.
