Energy usage is currently a leading contributor to the University’s green house gas emissions. In order to begin reducing our energy consumption campus wide, we implemented an energy management plan in 2009. The plan outlines guidelines that are to be followed campus wide, by faculty, staff, administration, and students in order to ensure that we are decreasing our impact on the environment and reducing our energy use.

We also participate yearly in national energy reduction competitions. These competitions run during the spring semester and updates will be available at the beginning of each new competition!
- Temperature management, including daytime set points and nighttime setbacks
- Programmable thermostats have been installed in various places around campus to help manage the temperature set points
- Solar panels on the roof of Butler Hall
- Emergency Load Response Program (ELRP) - Loyola, along with other area colleges, have joined the electricity Emergency Load Response Program (ELRP) which means we have volunteered to reduce consumption of electricity during periods of high stress on the Mid-Atlantic grid.
- Work with facilities department to identify more opportunities to increase energy efficiency
- Develop programs to help increase energy use awareness and promote behavioral changes decreasing energy waste
- Explore additional energy opportunities
