The greening of entire dorms in universities is not as widespread as one would expect, considering all the buzz going around about all the ways colleges both large and small are becoming increasingly eco-conscious. However, some universities have small alternative housing communities that host students who want wholly sustainable living. Sarah Lawrence College has once such community (Warren Green), as does UC Davis (The Domes, a.k.a. “Baggins End”).
While most dorms still have traditional dorm furniture consisting of a bed and a desk, students can find several ways to green their dorms. Using second-hand or eco-friendly furniture (see link below) to complement the space are very useful, and other measures such as using energy-saving light bulbs or choosing not to keep a mini-fridge in the room can save energy.
