Amherst College has initiated a campaign to reduce the provision and consumption of bottled water on campus. This initiative furthers the College's efforts toward environmental sustainability.

Bottled water has been banned from all Catering and Dining Services events. However, the College will continue to provide bottled water with "To Go Meals" for athletes, as well as at other academic and athletic events for which water pitchers or Cambro beverage dispensers cannot be provided. The College will also continue to offer bottled water for retail sale at Schwemm's Coffee House and at vending machines throughout campus.
