UOttawa Campus Sustainability

This walk is a green tour of the University of Ottawa, focusing on the environmental infrastructure and the social integration of the University of Ottawa and the City of Ottawa (including the Sandy Hill area). The tour is organized by the Office of Campus Sustainability and will include topics related to green space, transportation, engineering, architecture, land planning, and agriculture. All are welcome.



We will meet on the front steps of Tabaret Hall (550 Cumberland).  From there, we will work our way south through the heart of the campus along the Grand Alley, ending at the SITE Building (800 King Edward, on the west side of King Edward, just north of Mann Ave.)  The route will follow pedestrian paths through the University of Ottawa Campus and will occasionally go into some of the buildings.
