Recycled Tissue Boxes and Printing Paper

The Facilities Management team is pleased to launch our new tissue boxes, which are made of 100% recycled cardboard. Look out for the new design!

Recycled paper will also be introduced in the network printers from November 5. Trays 1, 2, and 3 will all be set up with recycled paper, while Tray 4 will continue to be filled with regular paper in case any departments need it for more formal or official documents.

E Car Charging Stations

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Porsche to introduce two e car charging points. 3 spaces in the underground car park, close to the entrance, will be designated for Electric cars from November 5. 

Any student with an E car will be able to park on site from November 5. The E Car Charging spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis. 



Join us at the Brown Wall in the Atrium on Sunday, November 5 at 1pm to learn about a new QF Initiative rolling out at GU-Q: Sustainable composting solution for organic waste! Compost bins will be available for use at GU-Q, producing composted soil, from November 9 onwards.

Meatless Monday

The production of animal meat creates 15% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions, making it the highest carbon footprint of any food. On Monday, November 6, consider going meatless at O Street Cafe and take a step toward a more sustainable future.
