Sustainable Living Facilities
Ramapo College’s Sustainable Living Facilities (SLFs), which began operating in Fall 2010, follow the ‘green lifestyle in an existing building’ model, for two major reasons: there are no plans to build additional residence halls (at least in the near future), and most existing residences are new and not nearing the time for major renovation when the building could be greened.
Apartment-style living, where students are able to cook for themselves, and live in SLF-contained units, are ideal for the SLFs. The Village is close to the Sharp Sustainability Education Center (SSEC), but is restricted to one year of residency by seniors and is in high demand. The CPAs, while often viewed as less desirable, offer occupancy to freshmen through senior; the SLF's organic vegetable garden is located behind Redwood. Laurel Hall is an option for sophomores though seniors. Both the Village and Laurel Hall have single rooms; CPAs consist of doubles. Bicycle racks will be available at each SLF.
