In 2015 UniSC became a water refill campus meaning the University does not sell any single use plastic water bottles either directly or through its vendors.
All UniSC campuses are water refill campuses, providing free drinking water to staff, students and visitors. This includes a variety of alternative options to purchasing commercial bottled water on campus. This initiative aligns with the University's goal to reduce waste going to landfill and empowers the UniSC community to be environmentally responsible through providing a variety of alternative choices. By choosing to refill your water you can save money and help us to prevent approximately 40,000 plastic water bottles per year going to landfill.
