Drink Local

With more than 190 filtered water bottle-filling stations on the Princeton campus, students, staff and visitors have easy access to free filtered water for their reusable water bottles and mugs. Since 2009, freshmen have received complimentary water bottles during move-in. The Office of Sustainability also partners with the Graduate Student Government to provide all new incoming graduate students with water bottles every fall. "Drink Local" water bottles can also be purchased at the U-Store on Alexander Road.

What are bottle-filling stations?

water fountainOne of the 180+ tall spouts located throughout campus
  • Water bottle-filling stations provide you with great-tasting, filtered water from local sources.
  • Carbon-based filters are changed out every six months.
  • Bottled water from hundreds--or even thousands--of miles away is expensive and perpetuates our reliance on fossil fuels.
  • Using a refillable bottle saves both money and natural resources!

Where can you find a bottle-filling station?

  • Residence hall common kitchens, hallways and laundry rooms
  • Academic and Administrative buildings
  • Athletic buildings
