The Green Flat initiative allows students who embrace environmental issues to live together.

Green impact eventAs a student led network, we encourage our green flat residents to investigate and involve themselves with a range of environmental issues and projects. In previous years, residents of green flats have set up upcycling initiatives, held charity bake sales and run events to raise awareness of climate change. 

Our green flat residents are encouraged to save water and energy as well as develop environmentally friendly habits throughout their time studying with us.  

Clubs and societies Clubs and societies

In addition to the green flat initiative, the University also has a variety of environmental clubs and societies, such as Green Growers, Carbon Crew, People & Planet, and the VegBox Society. Green flat residents have been instrumental in setting up and contributing to these societies.

Previous residents have reported that they have felt that their University experience has been enhanced by having the opportunity to develop a social and cultural environment within halls of residence, which reflects their passions and values.
