- Residential & Student Life
Windows and Doors
We are a community that cares about each other’s comfort and our impact on the environment. Therefore, during the heating and cooling seasons, students keep windows closed on dorm. Opening windows not only wastes energy but also causes comfort issues in other rooms that have their windows closed. For similar reasons, doors on campus should never be propped open during the heating and cooling season.
- St. Andrew’s provides single stream recycling in blue bins on dorm and in classrooms where students can recycle rigid plastics, aluminum and metal cans, paper, paperboard and cardboard, glass and aseptic containers like milk and juice boxes. Full recycling bins should be taken to the recycling dumpster and dumped from the bag. Delaware recycling plants do not accept plastic trash bags and any recycling put in the dumpster inside a bag will not be recycled.
- Batteries and terracycling (e.g., chip bags, candy, and granola bar wrappers) can be recycled in the bins for each located in the dorm main common rooms.
- In the biology classroom, bins are available for recycling electronics, CFLs, batteries, and styrofoam peanuts.
The tap water provided on campus is tested regularly and completely safe. St. Andrew’s tap water does have slightly elevated levels of iron which can cause a reddish tint to some fixtures but is safe to drink and has no effect on the taste. For environmental and logistical reasons, students are not permitted to purchase bottled water online and have the bottled water delivered to campus. In general, students are discouraged from purchasing bottled water and encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle that can be refilled at the filtered water bottle filling stations located throughout campus.
St. Andrew’s Alumni Clothes Closet (STAAC)
The SAS community can purchase used clothes and shoes at the STAAC; apparel is donated by community members both throughout the year and during Project Zero at the end of the school year. Each item is for sale for $1, and all proceeds support supports financial aid. The STAAC is usually open Sunday afternoons.
