Bottled water

City is committed to reducing the amount of plastics on campus and therefore encourages students and staff to take advantage of the free drinking water that is available rather than purchasing water in plastic bottles.

All water provided through in-house hospitality is filtered and bottled on site into reusable glass bottles. No plastic bottles are provided.
