Baseline data is provided for FY 2006-2007 since the campus did not open until fall 2005. The performance year is FY 2014-2015. This data does not include campus construction and demolition.
Additionally, performance date for reporting OP 22 is July 1, 2014 thru June 30, 2015. This date differs from performance date for OP 1 which is January 1, 2014 thru December 31, 2014. This is primarily due to the baseline date developed for both OP 22 and OP 1 differing. Figures reported for both residential students and enrollment are reflective of records at the time of the performance dates. These values may differ from reported IC 2 and IC 3 figures, which reflect to-date actuals for enrollment and residential students.

Once a month there is a office supplies exchange event where unused office supplies are dropped off and departments can pick up any items they need.
Currently, UC Merced still prints course catalogs for incoming freshmen only. The institution does not print course schedules or directories for any of its students, staff, or faculty. Those items can be found on the UC Merced website.
At UC Merced there is no such thing as free printing. All students are charged $0.04 to print in black and white and $0.08 to print in color on campus. This is true for all printing locations on campus.
We hold an event called the Bobcat Recycling Fair each year. The Bobcat Recycling Fair is a collection event to gather items that residents no longer need. Last year, we collected clothing, e-waste, batteries, cell phones, school supplies and appliances. In addition, we had a redemption center on campus. Residents were allowed to bring their bottles and cans that they had saved throughout the semester and get CRV value for them.
Repurposement of tables, chairs and other furniture. Recycling employees use re-purposed bicycles.
UC Merced uses OZZI containers for all carry out food, which must be returned to an OZZI vending machine. Diners pay a $5 fee if they do not return the container.
UC Merced is currently phasing out plastic utensils and replacing them with wooden, compostable ones instead.
Dining provides a $.25 discount when reusable mugs/bottles are used to purchase coffee at both the cafe and main dining facility.
