In 2012-13, responding to a suggestion from two students, UEA Accommodation trialled a Green Flat in residences. This option brought together students who shared an interest in sustainable living and environmental issues.
In subsequent years, the scheme grew, and in 2015-16 approximately 100 students lived in Green Flats across campus. Green Flats were provided with a hamper of items, such as laundry ‘eggs’ and eco-friendly washing-up liquid, designed to promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
We are currently reviewing the Green Flat option for the 2017-18 academic year – please check back soon to see details of what will be on offer.
Green Flat accommodation is available to both Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. In the 2015-16 academic year, 96 Undergraduate students and 8 Postgraduate students are living in Green Flats.
The bar chart below shows the number of students from each School of Study living in Green Flats for the 2015-16 academic year.
