Spring 2018


Even as they prepared for final exams & made plans for the summer, 
University of Miami students helped our local community.
During spring move-out, 4,000+ resident students donated 38.5 tons of goods to 
Goodwill Industries International, Inc. - an increase of 7,570 pounds compared to last year's total! They also donated 568 pounds of food to Feeding South Florida the equivalent of nearly 472 meals!

Housing & Residence Life, ECO Agency and Green U want you to Green your Move Out:
  • Take your big items and electronic waste* to the Goodwill container (cabinets, furniture, printers, flat screens, laptop, you name it): Eaton, Hecht Dining, Hecht Tower, Mahoney Pearson, U Village from April 22 to May 13; 7 am to 6 pm
    *Before donating it, you should try to trade it in with our booksore

GREEN MOVE IN has been a success this year!

Thanks to a real team effort, from our new residents, parents, HRL, Facilities and our custodial staff, we were able to Recycle 20 tons of material, offsetting 20% of our total waste from Landfill.
Added to the rest of UM waste diversion efforts like yard waste mulching, copy paper reduction, reused cooking oil, toner recycling and surplus reuse, we reached a total 33% waste diversion rate!
