Green Building David Russell Apartments

Are you interested in sustainability, energy efficiency and the environment?

Do you want to reduce your impact on the environment while staying in University accommodation?

In 2019-20 Residential and Business Services trialed a "Green Building" at David Russell Apartments.  For 2020-21 we are continuing this initative.  This will be allocated to returning students who request "Green Building" on their accommodation application form.  Students should select this under the Further Preference Options on the application form.

Successful students will be allocated to an ensuite building at DRA/FP which has metering for heat and electricity per apartment.  You will be able to track your energy data online and see how you are comparing to the other flats in the building.  Residents will be encouraged to reduce consumption.  There may also be further environmental initiatives trailled in these apartments.

A target for energy use will be set and if the building meets these targets, Residential and Business Services will make a donation to a charity of the residents choice.
