We're making university living more sustainable

Whilst living in accommodation at university SOS-UK provides a platform for students to take personal action on the climate crisis. We think this is important because:

  1. Halls of residence are energy and water intensive buildings.
  2. Electricity, heat and water are one of the largest contributors to the climate crisis, with the majority of Europe’s energy coming from fossil fuels.
  3. When bills are included in rent, we may not be as enticed to save energy and water.
  4. Reducing our energy, waste and water consumption is a great way to reduce our negative environmental and social impact and also cuts carbon emissions.
