Sustainability Map & Tours


Accompany Office of Sustainability staff on a guided campus tour of AU's green buildings, vegetated roofs, green energy systems, and more. Tours begin outside the SIS Building. Tours are offered regularly during the academic year, and last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. 


Tours should be individually scheduled for classes, offices, clubs, and other groups of any size, including those from outside the university. A trained student intern or professional staff member will lead you through AU's sustainable features. 

Schedule a Tour: E-mail specifying your preferred tour date, time, and approximate number of attendees. Regular business hours are preferred.

Presentation Option: Guided tours can also be paired with a PowerPoint presentation that delves more deeply into our behind-the-scenes work on campus - this option is popular with classes seeking a broad overview of the principles of sustainability.
