Communities within the College Park Apartments
1. Sustainable Living Facilities
Ramapo College’s Sustainable Living Facilities (SLFs), which began operating in Fall 2010, follow the ‘green lifestyle in an existing building’ model, for two major reasons: there are no plans to build additional residence halls (at least in the near future), and most existing residences are new and not nearing the time for major renovation when the building could be greened. https://www.ramapo.edu/ramapo-green/sustainable-living-facilities-slfs/
2. Gender Inclusive Housing
Ramapo College seeks to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities; one not limited by the traditional gender binary. Gender Neutral Housing allows for same-gender, opposite-gender or other-gender identities to live together regardless of biological sex. This provides a living/learning environment where residents can learn about and explore gender identity and expression in a supportive environment. https://www.ramapo.edu/housing-selection/gender-neutral/
