Live an environmentally friendly lifestyle Live an environmentally friendly lifestyle

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.
