Green Campus

Infrastructure

UCO administration and facilities has been a long-standing leader in sustainability. Through a partnership with Edmond Electric, UCO sources 100 percent of its electricity from wind power.

For more than a decade, UCO has worked with Johnson Controls to upgrade the efficiency of campus buildings. This partnership has resulted in massive savings for the university and has substantially limited the university’s impact on the environment.

Campus Partnerships 

Since 2009, UCO has partnered with the City of Edmond to provide a student-centric route for the Citylink bus program, known as the Broncholink. To track the bus in real time, visit the Live Shuttle Tracker or download the app.

UCO also offers options for cyclists on campus, including the Bum-a-Bike short-term rental program, bike repair stations located throughout campus and a bike registration program.

Recycling 

Recycling is available throughout campus.

Plastic bottles, aluminum cans and paper bins are located throughout common areas. Paper and cardboard bins are located in computer labs, office spaces and docking areas throughout campus. Batteries can be dropped off at the Office of Sustainability, 2nd floor, Nigh University Center, Room 212 and with building captains.

Zero Waste

Green Office Certification 

The Green Office Certification program is aimed at improving the sustainability practices within office spaces and common areas on campus. It allows offices to receive praise for their sustainability efforts, as well as see where improvements can be made.
