Sustainability on campus

Ryerson University is committed to advancing sustainability throughout our campus and community. We continuously pursue opportunities to improve sustainability, leveraging the contributions of our entire community and serving as a catalyst for broader transformation.
During Congress 2017, we invite attendees to join us in modelling sustainability by taking advantage of our programs and integrating sustainability into everyday actions, such as:

  • Conserving energy: Take the stairs; turn off lights, computers and equipment when not in use.
  • Carrying a reusable water bottle or mug.
  • Sorting your waste: Collection bins for compost, refundable beverage containers, and paper and cardboard are conveniently stationed at events and throughout campus.
  • Commuting sustainably: The campus is easily accessible by public transit.

To learn more about sustainability on our campus, visit our sustainability website or contact the Campus Facilities & Sustainability.
