Marquette Sustainability

Welcome to Marquette Sustainability. We coordinate and advance Marquette University’s sustainability initiatives as they relate to academics, engagement, operations, planning and administration, and innovation.

Sustainability means meeting the social, environmental, financial and economic needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability includes conserving energy, water and other resources; protecting and improving air, water and habitat quality; preventing waste and pollution; and doing these activities in a manner that promotes social justice, health, environmental welfare and economic security.

Live more sustainably

Here are two ways Marquette can help you live more sustainably:


Students can use their U-PASS to bus to and from Marquette University. To pick up and validate a new U-PASS, visit Union Station, AMU, 158. Learn more about U-PASS and MCTS (Milwaukee County Transit System).


Marquette University proudly provides single stream recycling, meaning you can dispose all recyclable items into the same bin without sorting. For more information about recycling at Marquette University, please visit Advanced Disposal’s Recycle Right.
