Helping the Environment
TAKING SMALL STEPS TO CREATING A MORE SUSTAINABLE LIVING ENVIRONMENT
At Student Rooms we are working towards more sustainable environmental practices and encourage all our students to live with sustainability in mind.
- Use of energy efficient light bulbs*
- New purpose built dwellings are to include solar panels and energy saving ‘heat pump’ hot water systems*
- We discourage the use of electric clothes dryers in our share houses to promote air-drying
- Installation of water saving toilet systems*
- Fitting water efficient shower heads*
- We encourage taker shorter showers and turning off tap when brushing your teeth
- Every Student Rooms site is located in close proximity to rapid public transport options for example Go Zones, train or tram stations or the O-Bahn busway system. This means our housemates can us existing public transport, help reduce their environmental footprint and save money on transport costs
- Many Student Rooms locations are close to bicycle trails to get to the city or University campuses. We have a number of car-free households. Our housemates average only 1 car per 9 people living with Student Rooms – due largely to the transport oriented locations we specifically choose
- We encourage our housemates to also make use of share car systems, such as Go-get car share.
