UNT Health Science Center is committed to creating solutions for a healthier community. The Office of Sustainability within Facilities Management supports that mission by encouraging our campus to adopt behaviors that are better for the health of our community and environment. Our purpose is to partner with various departments and persons on campus and in the community to implement sustainable practices on campus.

For over a decade, the campus has been implementing strategies to be good stewards of our resources. These initiatives include reducing energy usage, conserving water, and recycling to name a few. Learn what our campus is doing to be sustainable and get involved in the efforts!

  • We added faster, more reliable charging stations to campus for electric vehicles to plug in.  Click here for all the details.
  • We now have 3 solar charging station tables on campus in the Library Courtyard! Each table features a three-port smart battery hub and can charge any USB device as fast as a wall outlet.  Click here for a photo or visit the SustainableUNTHSC Facebook page.
  • We started a new program called Lab Efficiency Action Program (LEAP) for labs to get rewarded for practicing safe, efficient and sustainable behaviors in the lab.  See the brochure here, and contact us if you’d like more information.
