For most young people, college is a time of exploring, making new friends, and developing independence. It is also a time where most students move out of the house they grew up in and into a residence hall or apartment building for the first time.

Some of the most prestigious Universities have been around for hundreds of years–including their residence halls, which may or may not be renovated. This means there could be hazardous materials such as asbestos or lead paint, and even more commonly, mold. Only some Universities, like the University of Louisville, provide students with information on how to keep these environments safe.

Before you make a decision about your living space, it’s important to test the quality of the environment. Contact Dr. Riegel to consult and learn more about your college living space.
