Energy & Recycling

Energy and Recycling

We encourage all of our residents to be environmentally responsible and supportive of the University’s Environment Policy.

We provide a range of resources and recycling facilities on site. You can help reduce our environmental impact in the following easy ways.

Conserve energy

Switch off all lights when you don't need them, especially when you leave your room.

Don't leave electrical appliances on standby. Switch off your television, stereo and PC including the monitor, especially overnight or if you are away at weekends.

Conserve water

Turn off taps when you're not using them, and report any dripping or leaking taps to Reception. You could also not leave the tap running continuously when you're washing your hands.


Help us to reduce the amount of waste that needs to go to landfill by making good use of the recycling facilities on site.

Most sites have glass bottle and newspaper/magazine banks and other recycling schemes.
