Staff and Student Project Proposals

The University is seeking proposals from staff and students that can improve its sustainability performance. These can be ideas that reduce the energy usage of our buildings or equipment, ideas that help improve our student’s experiences of nature or to improve our community allotment. Funds can be made available to support projects that meet key criteria as set out in the document below. A PDF of the project submission form can be downloaded here. We would however like you to complete a Word version that is available by emailing


The University provides the Sustainability Team with funding to help deliver its sustainability goals. This covers the team (including student recruitment to projects such as End of Term Reuse, Student Switch Off), investments in energy, waste and water, biodiversity projects in addition learning and development around sustainability issues. It covers appropriate audit and professional costs including or our EMS and other works, memberships and subscriptions. It is also possible to allocate funds for staff and student projects. In the past this has included the Community Edible Garden and The End of Term Reuse Programme. Funds are also available for staff and students to develop specific projects via our Proposals Fund.
