This sustainability-themed, 10-person suite is located on the downhill side of campus in Latin Way. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are all invited to live in The Hive. As a special interest house, The Hive's goal is to create a community of students interested in sustainable living and issues surrounding sustainability. Residents of The Hive come from different backgrounds and have a variety of different interests, but are connected through their shared interest in the environment. Those living in the suite are expected to support and/or take part in the environmental student groups on campus. See Get Involved: Student Organizations. Additionally, all members of The Hive are expected to complete a sustainability-based project during their residency in the house.
The Hive is a focal point for the environmentally-minded community on Tufts campus. It brings together eco-friendly students, organizations, and faculty to promote knowledge and passion for sustainable living. The suite provides a living space for students looking for a more sustainable way of life, as well as a meeting space for the larger environmentally concerned community on campus.
The founders of The Hive aspired to create a space which:
Brings people with similar interests together in a living environment
Provides an opportunity for residents to learn new ways to live sustainably alongside their housemates
Fosters the environmental community on campus
Encourages cooperation between the various environmentally focused groups on campus
Provides space for environmental groups to host programs for the entire Tufts community

The Green House
About the Green House
The Green House is part of the "Create Your Own Theme House" residences within CoHo (Tufts' Community Houses). Beginning during the 2020-2021 academic year, students have the choice to create their own theme house with their peers. CoHo houses are only available for juniors and seniors looking to live on campus. The Green House is a house on 12 Bellevue Ave. that was built with sustainability in mind. The house is well-insulated, has low-flow water plumbing fixtures, and has solar panels on the roof, among its many sustainable features. There is a 4-person and an 8-person apartment, each with single bedrooms.
Students apply for this house as either a 4-person, 8-person, or 12-person group during the Housing Application season in the fall and they must have a mission and goals focused on sustainability and/or the environment. This enables a group of rising juniors and seniors who want to live together in a sustainability-minded community to take advantage of the Green House in whichever way they see fit, whether they have a group project related to volunteering for a local sustainability non-profit, or group goals to raise awareness on climate change on environmental justice among their peers through hosting events.
