Green Living and Quiet Lifestyle Communities

Living on campus at Elmhurst offers all the amenities of home—plus the convenience of close proximity to classes, the library, the gym and all your favorite student activities. Our Green Living Community and Housing Option of Quiet Lifestyle offer additional opportunities to residents who live in these communities.

Green Living Community

The Green Living Community is located in a co-ed environment that will allow students to foster their passion in the area of  sustainability and living green and share their knowledge with the hall and campus communities. Residents will:

  • Enhance their sustainability knowledge through programming opportunities
  • Explore, with faculty, how majors and careers connect to current issues in sustainability
  • Commit, with their fellow suitemates, to having a "Green Suite Living" environment
  • Apply their knowledge of the economic, environmental and equity issues associated with sustainability through service learning
Quiet Lifestyle Community

In choosing to reside in a Quiet Lifestyle Community, students will live in a unique environment where each member of the community agrees to support an atmosphere which is conducive to sleep and study at all times during the day and night.  Residents in this community agree to:

  • Abide by the establilshed quiet hours
  • Respect the rights of other community members to request a quiet environment at all times
  • Hold all social activities outside the established quiet hours
