Sustainability and your hall of residence

We are working hard to produce a new sustainability programme across all our halls.  Details on how you can help us from recycling your waste to reducing energy use will be published here.


Last year, with your help, we recycled over 169 tonnes (about the same weight as a train travelling between Manchester and Leeds).

We’re passionate about leading a more sustainable world, which is why, in all halls, we make sure you have access to separate recycling bags in your kitchen and recycling bins outside. There should be stickers/notes on the bags and bins to let you know what you can and can’t recycle.

If you have questions about how to recycle and dispose of waste from your study room and kitchen then speak to staff in your hall who will be able to offer advice and guidance on local arrangements.
