Water Dispensers

Under COVID-19, some water fountains are temporarily closed due to safety concern, but over 50 water dispensers are still open! Bringing your own refillable bottle means you avoid the need to use disposable water bottles. 

You can also get a free water refill at participating catering outlets on campus.
