The Ullem Center for Sustainability

The Ullem Center for Sustainability invites students to engage with hands-on sustainability and agricultural initiatives. The building features a spacious, flexible interior equipped with resource-saving systems that demonstrate practical ways to enhance environmental quality. The surrounding 12-acre property offers opportunities for education, food production and community engagement for DePauw and Greencastle.

We encourage students to utilize the Ullem Center for studying and building community!


The Ullem Center is open from 9am-5pm M-F. To reserve the space after 5pm or host an event during the weekend, please email sustainability@depauw.edu. Please also make a reservation when planning to host large groups or events during open hours to avoid scheduling conflicts. All requests will be accepted case by case according to the discretion and availability of Sustainability Staff. As a reminder, all events in the Ullem Center must be Green Certified.
