A Modern Campus
Facilities Services is dedicated to helping UC Clermont College create a 21st-centrury campus. Starting in early 2017, several air handlers original to the campus will be replaced with modern, high efficiency units. By late 2018, a new multi-million dollar Central Utility Plant will be completed. This building and its new boilers, chillers, and cooling towers will increase campus efficiency recouping build costs in under ten to twelve years. The plant, which will be connected to the Snyder Building via a pedestrian bridge and will also feature a second floor of Facilities Services office and team space, will support the college’s continued growth well into the future.
In more sustainable measures, 2017 marks the third year of the college’s initiative to install LED lighting throughout the campus classrooms, and bottle-filler water fountains — eliminating the need for landfill-bound plastic water bottles — have replaced traditional fountains in every building. Facilities Services is also committed to recycling and provides a repository for students, faculty and staff to drop off used batteries. And only green chemicals are used to keep UC Clermont’s buildings not just functional, but pristine.
- Repositories for recycling batteries
- Repositories for recycling cell phones (EcoCell Program boxes)
- We recycle all used CFL bulbs
- Indoor and outdoor canisters for recycling cans/bottles/etc
- Paper cans in all offices and student labs
- A recycle dumpster out back for paper/cardboard
As of May 2017, all UC campuses are tobacco-free; Facilities Services is proud to support the Tobacco-Free UC initiative.
From hanging artwork and providing moving guidelines to setting up flawless events and helping UC Clermont go “green,” Facilities Services acts as the hard-working, reliable backbone of a 24/7 campus.
