Set on the southern slope of one of the highest points in the city, the Catholic University of America has a beautiful natural landscape graced with extraordinary views, rolling topography, and pastoral plantings. Across campus, our landscape and grounds are maintained with a focus on caring for our natural spaces and implementing best practices to reduce potable water use and stormwater runoff.

How do we achieve our water reduction goal? Do your part! If every student living on campus shortened their shower by two minutes every day, we would be 7% closer to reaching our goal! Read our blog post on how you can help conserve water on campus.
