Sustainability & Inn at Winthrop . . .

At the heart of Winthrop's campus is Joynes Hall, home of the Inn at Winthrop. The Inn at Winthrop features 12 elegantly appointed suites. Designed in the Neo-Georgian architectural style, Joynes Hall (1926) offers the conveniences and amenities of a modern lodging facility, but in a historic, traditional setting. Its distinctive interiors—with appealing color schemes, lighting and floor plans--boast comfort and elegance unique in the Rock Hill area.

Because Winthrop University is committed to sustainability and to serving as a positive example through sustainable practices.  The Inn at Winthrop proudly offers our guests:

  • In-room recycling

  • Organic cotton bedding and bamboo towels with no chemical by-products

  • Ecologically friendly cleaning products

  • Environmentally sensitive amenities in recyclable packaging

  • Compact fluorescent light bulbs

  • Paper products made from recycled materials

  • Water efficient plumbing fixtures

  • Use of low VOC products, including paint and cleaning products

We ask our guests to help us conserve energy, labor and water by:

  • Utilizing the in-room recycling bins for paper, plastic, glass, aluminum and newspaper

  • Reducing electricity by turning off lights and unplugging your electronic chargers when you are not in your suite

  • Checking HVAC units to ensure they are only running un-necessarily

  • Reusing your linens when possible

  • Following Winthrop's Vehicle No-Idling Policy
