Living It Green

Sustainable living in Leeds

The Living it Green campaign in University residences is all about reducing our combined impact on the environment through reducing energy consumption; reducing, re-use of & recycling waste; encouraging different forms of transport; and promoting positive impacts on other environmental issues.

The size of the University of Leeds is equivalent to a small town, employing 7,800 staff and educating over 32,000 students.  Its presence affects both the local community and the environment.

The University is committed to the national agenda for sustainable development and seeks to reflect best environmental practices in the conduct of its activities and operations.


Green Reps

You can play a more active role in promoting green living within your residence by becoming a Green Rep!

Green Reps sit on the Hall Executive of each residence; they receive training and support meetings throughout the year. If your residence already has a Green Rep, consider approaching them and asking if you can get involved as a volunteer on the Green Team for your residence.

Just contact your Residence to find out more.



Living it Green Guide

You can find out more information on Living it Green by downloading the Living it Green Guide.  You should have also received a copy of the Living it Green Guide in your welcome pack when you arrived at your residence.
