Water bottles and drinking fountains
Bottled water can have negative impacts on both human health and the environment. Luckily in Australia we have some of the best tap water in the world which is perfectly safe to drink.
La Trobe has water fountains installed across our campuses to allow students and staff to refill and stay hydrated for free, so bring a reusable bottle and save some money and the environment by refilling. Check out this map of water fountain locations on our Melbourne (Bundoora) Campus.
Reusable bottles also help us avoid packaging waste on campus – win-win!
If you spot an issue with a water fountain on campus, please log a maintenance request to get it fixed.
