Residence Education


Program Catalog

SEED’s Program Catalog is a resource for other student leaders within the HFS community to easily incorporate sustainability and education into their programming. If you wish to collaborate with SEED through the Program Catalog, please look at the available programs here and then fill out the collaboration request form here (only accessible using a UW email). If you have any questions regarding the Program Catalog, please contact SEED through your Hall Council SEED Rep (for interested Hall Councils) or contact us directly at

On Campus at UW

These resources are for anyone at the UW who want to get more involved on campus and/or campus sustainability. Let us know if you have any green resources that you would like to share with us!

  • Explains what to compost and recycle within Housing and Food Services (i.e. in residence halls and dining facilities) along with other information about campus sustainability.
  • Unsure how to dispose of an item on campus? Just look for it on UW Recycling’s list. Though the rules for ordinary recycling may differ from those in HFS buildings, the list also covers other waste streams such as E-media.
  • A directory of locations where consumers can recycle electronic waste and other hazardous materials in Seattle and western Washington. (Some electronic waste is also accepted in the UW’s E-media bins, refer to the Downloads page for more information.)

The departments below are all key pieces of UW’s sustainability story. Follow the links below to learn more!
