Green Initiative


Our “Going Green” initiative began with the renovation of the historic Santa Fe Freight Depot, which was built in the 1930s. We are committed to using non-toxic cleaning supplies, purchasing recycled/compostable office and event supplies, and utilizing a 100% recycled post-consumer waste paper for printing, copying, and promotional materials. We also offer a convenient on-campus recycling center for students, staff, faculty and other stakeholders to drop-off the following waste materials: plastic, paper, cardboard, computers, florescent light bulbs, batteries, and cell phones.

These initiatives are part of the University’s Maverick Green Office program, which UTA Fort Worth is a gold member.
