U of T is ending bottled water sales on all of its campuses in response to a student campaign. Although bottled water won’t be banned on the UTSC campus, after Oct. 31 it will not be provided at university functions, sold in vending machines or by on-campus restaurants and vendors.

Instead, beginning this year, the university will install new bottle filling stations and upgrade old water fountains. The filling stations will have high goose-neck spouts under which a bottle can be easily placed. The first planned locations for the filling stations will be the Student Centre, outside the library, in the Science Wing and near the vending machines above the Meeting Place.

Eventually filling stations will be located in every building on campus. The university will also develop educational campaigns and signs to make it easy to find water on campus.
