The University of Arizona hosts thousands of visitors each year who often comment on the beauty of the campus. What people don’t often see is the smart design and hidden features that are purposefully engineered into our buildings and landscapes that make our campus a leader in sustainability. From underground rainwater harvesting tanks that irrigate landscapes, to Arizona’s oldest LEED certified building, this campus is full of features that help support the University’s sustainability goals and are helping to reduce the effects of climate change.
The Campus Sustainability Tour is a two-mile self-guided tour through campus with 14 stops that highlight some of the most prominent examples of environmentally friendly design, as well as some features that people walk by on a daily basis without noticing. The tour starts at the ENR2 building on the south end of campus, and ends at the Community Garden on the north edge of campus.
