College students, as high-quality talents for China's future social construction, are the main force for practicing low-carbon life. Through investigating the cognition, willingness, behavior and motivation of low-carbon life among college students in Hubei universities, it is found that most college students do not have a sound low-carbon cognitive concept, and their awareness of responsibility for low carbon and the subjective motivation to spread it are not strong, so it is difficult to change their low-carbon behavior in the short term. Accordingly, countermeasures to promote low-carbon lifestyle of college students are proposed in terms of raising responsibility awareness, visualizing "low-carbon", creating a good campus low-carbon atmosphere, cultivating "low-carbon" models, and promoting low-carbon ideological innovation.
