Access to Water

A Human Right.  Local to Global

Following a two year-long educational campaign, Loyola students voted to end the sale of bottled water on campus.  The students consider the sale of bottled water on campus in conflict with the Jesuit tradition and Loyola's mission 'to be in service of humanity through learning, justice and faith'.  Additionally, the students believe that "access to water is a fundamental human right and must not be handled in ways that put profits over people".

Reusable Water Bottles and Water Refill Stations

During the bottled water ban campaign, UnCap LUC, students in SEA met with the Facilities Management Department regularly to discuss ways to allow people on campus to refill reusable water bottles conveniently and easily.  Facilities responded by retrofitting over 35 water fountains with Refill Stations. 

The Office of First Year Experience have been supplying all new students with reusable water bottles and remain committed to continue to do so.

It is easy to find the nearest water refill station using our maps:
