The Office of Sustainability seeks to adopt alternative methods of traditional transportation to help Hamilton reach its carbon neutrality goal of 2030.

Electric Vehicles

electric car charging stationHamilton currently has 20 EV stations, and will continue to add stations to accommodate growing demand. EV charging stations are located near the following buildings:

  • Field House
  • Burke Library
  • Siuda House (reserved for admission guests)
  • Ferguson House
  • Skenadoa House
  • Anderson-Connell
  • Babbitt Pavillion 
  • Root Residence Hall
  • Campus 

To access and start using the stations, students can download the free EV Connect app on their phone. After creating an account, a user can simply scan the QR code or Port ID of the station, plug in their car, and begin charging. The app will alert the user when the car is fully charged. 


In the upcoming years, Hamilton will strive to advertise and expand opportunities for electric vehicle charging, develop a comprehensive plan for gradual fleet electrification, and develop campus-wide strategies on the climate impacts of travel decisions that encourage a reduction in unnecessary travel.  The Transportation office purchased 2 hybrid vehicles during the fall of 2023 and will continue to invest in green transportation. 

Jitney Ride Sharing 

The Jitney is a free transportation service for students who want to visit locally owned shops and restaurants and the Hannaford supermarket in the village of Clinton. Ride-sharing reduces the number of vehicles on the road, further limiting the emission of harmful pollutants.

Bikes on Campus
