Sustainability and the Environment

We take our responsibilities to protect the environment very seriously, and we feel strongly that universities have an important role in achieving sustainability and reducing climate change. We have an environmental policy that gives a commitment to continuous environmental improvement, and staff and students share this commitment.

Living on 'Green' Campuses

There is a comprehensive recycling scheme in place across the University, including the halls of residence. All students living here are expected to support this policy, and we hope that they will continue good recycling practice when they move into private rented accommodation.

Students and staff are encouraged to use sustainable forms of transport whenever possible.

The Curriculum

Where possible we promote an awareness of the environment and best environmental practice through our courses, which reflect our concern for the natural environment, sustainable development and resource management.
