    As part of Princeton University's goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2046, we are advancing our use of geo-exchange technology. Investing in geo-exchange projects, with enough capacity to serve the entire campus, will enable Princeton to phase out nonrenewable energy sources, including natural gas used today to produce steam heat. Check out our new Expanding Geo-Exchange Technology at Princeton Unversity flyer to understand how geo-exchange works, how we are not installing geothermal wells, and how our infrastructure projects work together to advance geo-exchange technology across campus.

The new suite of Princeton University COVID signs provide safety information using colorful graphics and icons developed around 4 types of signs.

    Most heating systems on Princeton University's campus need to be turned on manually. Building heat is scheduled to be turned on around October 15, 2020, depending on the weather. We literally go building by building turning on individual heating systems in the fall, a very time-consuming process with the wide variety of heating systems in our wonderfully old and new campus buildings.
