USC Sunshine Coast is a Water Refill campus providing 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 USC 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.
In partnership with Go2ZONE and Water 3, the University is showing commitment and leadership to sustainability through providing a true alternative to bottled water with the installation of three water refill vending machines. Two Go2ZONE machines at Building I and the Library dispense chilled, micron-filtered still FREE water and Water3 machine at Building E offer a chilled spring still and sparkling water for a substantially low cost to users. USC also provides 18 free aqua bubblers (bottle refilling stations) and over 50 water fountains across the campus.
The University encourages people to bring their own bottle or purchase a bottle or a large compostable cup from any campus food outlet on campus.
The University no longer sells commercial bottled still water on campus.
