The UAF Sustainable Village provides a place to test and vet new technologies and proves that affordable, high-
performance housing is possible in an extreme climate, with a careful eye toward design and energy. Over two
years, the homes used half as much energy as the average new house in Fairbanks, thanks to a super-insulated,
airtight envelope. Another important finding is that students love living in the new homes. The Sustainable
Village received the highest ratings of all campus housing.
