  • Use op-shops or sites like Gumtree and Freecycle to re-home unwanted household items from clothes, furniture, electronics etc.
  • Try purchasing in bulk to reduce to need for excess packaging

Transport

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.

Food Share

Food share – many of our houses have fruit trees and we encourage our housemates to share fruits with there friends or using food-sharing websites like Ripenearme
