*A hydration station is an upgraded drinking fountain that provides students a convenient way to fill up their reusable water bottles with filtered water for free. Instead of having to tilt their water bottle to fill it 75% at a water fountain, students now have the luxury of being able to fill their bottle to the top. There are also many hydration stations located throughout campus (visit the hydration station "layer" on UCSB's interactive campus map.) In addition to providing students a way of staying healthy and hydrated throughout the school year, hydration stations promote environmental stewardship by encouraging students to use and re-fill their reusable water bottles rather than purchasing single-use plastic bottles that end up polluting our oceans, beaches, and communities.
