Green Campus

Contact: trinitycollege.greencampus@gmail.com

Green Campus is dedicated to making Trinity a “greener” place and hence a good neighbor.  Green Campus is dedicated to raising awareness about College’s environmental impacts and to undertake initiatives to reduce the impact.  In this vein, Green Campus works on improving College recycling (new outdoor recycling bins on campus and a new website created about recycling), reducing food waste in the College cafeteria (Project Clean Plate), salvaging items disposed of by students at the end of the academic year (Dump and Run), buying “green” energy for special days at the College, planting trees, introducing locally-grown food in the College dining halls, and advocating for policies to make Trinity a more environmentally conscious campus. 

U-Pass

Contact:  Joe Barber, Director (joseph.barber@trincoll.edu)

The U-Pass is partnership established to benefit all Trinity College students.  Through this program, each Trinity student receives a U-Pass (a new one is issued each semester) good for free and unlimited use on CT Transit local service buses, with no out-of-pocket cost.  In the 2006-2007 academic year over 15,000 Trinity rides were recorded as a result of the U-Pass (up from approximately 12,000 in 1999-2000).  For  bus routes and schedules, visit http://www.cttransit.com/
