Request A Hydration Station

Notice: funding for this program is currently unavailable for the fiscal year. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please follow the steps below.

How do I request a hydration station?

Sustainable Campus and Facilities Maintenance have developed a streamlined process for installing hydration stations around campus. Funding is available to support requests from departments seeking to upgrade their equipment. Please note, there are numerous water fountain models throughout campus and not all current types can be replaced with a hydration station.

Program criteria:

  • Currently available only for E&G funded departments.

  • Ability to support requests depends on the availability of funding. If funding is unavailable, a waiting list will be created.

  • Support is only for 1 unit/department. Departments seeking additional hydration stations are responsible for the full cost of each additional unit.

  • Costs (equipment and labor) will be split 50-50 between the Green Fund and the requesting department.

  • New installations and costs are dependent on the system currently in place (and how it is attached to or set into the wall).

  • Requests can only be made for units in high-traffic, easily accessible locations open to all building occupants.

  • Hydration stations will be set at an ADA-compliant height.

Program costs (dependent on replacement needs of current unit):

  • Retrofit kit, $500┬ácost to department
  • Single full-unit replacement, $1,300 cost to department
  • Hi-lo full-unit replacement, $1,600 cost to department
  • Additional costs may be incurred if additional power, plumbing, and/or materials is needed.

If your department is interested in installing a hydration station, please email a photo of the current unit and a description of its location to Elizabeth Swiman (
