The Water Footprint (HH) is an indicator of fresh water, refers to the use of water both directly and indirectly for a product, process, and consumer or in aZgeographically defined area, in this case, the HH will be calculated in the facilities of the University of Ibagué. The HH is important since it allows us to know the water consumption that the University is using in its processes or services, as well as to analyze aspects to be improved in terms of reducing water consumption and being more efficient in the use that is being given to it, and includes an evaluation of sustainability, that is, water is evaluated from an environmental, social and economic perspective, (Gobierno de Aragón, n.d.). For this reason, the decision was made to use the Water Footprint assessment methodology described by the International Network The Water Footprint Assessment Manual, as an indicator of the sustainability of water use at the University of Ibagué. This is a research that will make it possible to quantify the water footprint with an individual analysis of the components of the water footprint (blue and grey) and thus know how much water enters the facilities and how much each inhabitant of the University of Ibagué consumes. On the other hand, this study will allow the establishment of new control policies and the formulation of new plans for collisions inside the University facilities.
