Apply to Live in the Green House!

This sustainability-themed housing unit is in its third year of existence! The suite is located in Latin Way, with 10 available spots.
Living in the Green House is similar to living in one of the existing special interest houses. Instead of focusing on a language or religion, it is meant to be an intentional community of people who are all interested in issues surrounding sustainability. The house is filled with student of a broad range of interests and levels of background knowledge, from those who started their high school environmental club to those just beginning their journey. Everyone in the house is required to either work on sustainability-related research or work with the Sustainable Action Squad (a group of student dedicated to catalyzing environmental changes on campus), and generally be involved in the sustainability movement at Tufts.

The Green House is also intended as a focal point for the environmental community on the Tufts campus. It brings Eco-friendly students, organizations, and faculty together to promote the spread of knowledge and passion for sustainable living. The house provides a living space for environmentally interested students, and a meeting place for the larger Tufts community. The goals of the founders of the house included bringing together people with similar interests in a living environment, fostering the environmental community on campus, providing an opportunity for residents to learn new ways to live sustainably alongside their housemates, providing space for environmental groups to host programs for the entire Tufts community, and bringing together various environmentally focused groups on campus and encouraging cooperation between them.

There will be a free dinner at the Green House on Monday, February 6th from 6:00-8:00 PM in the Latin Way D250s. 

The application is due February 6th at midnight.
