U of T bans sale of bottled water at downtown campus Add to ...

Students arriving for classes at the University of Toronto will find bottled water is no longer available at most locations on the downtown St. George campus.

And over a three-year period, sales of bottled water at the Mississauga and Scarborough campuses will also be phased out.

The university is joining over a dozen other campuses that are also putting an end to bottled water sales.

Officials say students have been raising awareness about of the issue of making water a commodity.

On the St. George campus, food service outlets and vending machines will stop offering bottled water.

Water will be available from new fountains and water-refill stations.
