The present study discusses the energy conservation activities of Doshisha University; we examined changes in "energy consumption", "the comfort conditions of students", and "student attitudes toward energy saving" to discuss the "contribution of our activities to the environment", "the social responsibility of students", and "continuity". As a result, although there was an increase in the number of days on which lectures were delivered until the first week of August, 2008 (a one-day increase

As for the comfort condition of students, questionnaire surveys were conducted on energy conservation activities imp lemented until the summer of 2010, and the results identified the details of environ mental problems associated with lecture classes: -In the summer season, there were decreases in "co mfort levels expressed as temperatures" during lectures due to changes in room temperatures and humidity levels. -The environ ment for students to listen to lectures significantly varied depending on the college (campus), time, and classroom. -The environ ment was affected by the outdoor air to some extent, although the level of this influence became increasingly lower.
