Drink Local

With more than 250 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. "Drink Local" water bottles can be purchased at the U-Store on University Place.

Why Drink Local?

  • 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!
  • Tap water is sourced from the local watershed and often meets or exceeds FDA bottled water standards.
