Decisions.  We are faced with them constantly. From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep, our mind is always making a decision. Some decisions we think so much about because we fear if it’s the wrong one, we’ll regret it. If you’re a senior in high school, your mind is probably deciding on a lot more than the average human. You’re deciding on your future – where to go to college, what to major in, and even where to live. When I chose to attend the University of Illinois, I knew that moment I was living in Bromley Hall. Sure, I did some research on university housing versus private certified housing, but what really sold me was the viewpoints of Bromley from someone who actually lived here. So, why Bromley? Bromley isn’t like the average dorm; it’s so much better. The building is beautiful, the rooms are spacious, and did I mention you get your own bathroom? Bromley has so much to offer that other dorms don’t. If you’re worried about not having the “regular dorm life,” don’t be. I promise you people will be running around your floor at some point, giving you that thrived-for dorm life feeling. Bromley’s room layout isn’t the only feature that sets it a part from the rest, but Bromley is also a community. Seeing familiar faces, playing piano in the lobby, and being friends with your RA aren’t uncommon for Bromley residents. I don’t regret my decision of living in Bromley at all. In fact, I don’t believe there was a more perfect choice for me on this campus. So jump on the Brom bandwagon, and I can almost guarantee you won’t regret it.

At Bromley Hall, we partner with our residents and the community in on-going green initiatives. Our goals are to conserve energy, water, and raw materials in order to minimize waste and pollution and also to provide a healthy and comfortable environment for all of our residents. Here's what we've accomplished so far:

Electricity Usage - Since 2005, our annual building electric usage has decreased by approximately 22% in part due to:

  • New energy efficient lighting installed throughout the building
  • New multi-stage air conditioning chillers and energy management system

Water Usage - Since 2005, our annual building water usage has decreased by 13 million gallons (almost 57%) in part due to:

  • New plumbing fixtures installed in all resident bathrooms.
  • New cooling towers that now run our air conditioning system
  • Going trayless in our dining facility (saving on extra washing)

Heating/Cooling Costs - Since 2005, we have reduced consumption of natural gas by almost 22% in part due to:

  • New low multi pane windows installed in all resident rooms
  • Both boilers are upgraded and recalibrated so they operate at peak efficiency, conserving gas

Recycling - In December 2010, with the help of our residents and in partnership with the City of Champaign, we implemented a building-wide recycling program.

We know that little things done now can have a real impact on the future, and we are constantly searching for and introducing new and exciting changes to help our environment!
