We collect and donate unwanted items to charity.
We're an accredited Fairtrade University and our shops and cafes stock Fairtrade products
We generate our own electricity on site using wind turbines and solar panels.
We've saved over £250,000 on our water bill by using energy efficient measures.
We've achieved EcoCampus Gold award demonstrating commitment to continual environmental improvement.
We are replacing our lamps with LEDs (light emitting diodes) and installing automatic sensors wherever feasible.
