Making Environmentally-friendly Choices

Sustainability is the responsibility of us all, and having a positive impact relies on our staff and students making environmentally-friendly choices. This might include the way they commute to the University, dispose of their waste, organise events, and how they use space on campus. We are working with the University of Lincoln Students’ Union to engage with students on sustainability and to provide all of the information needed to make informed environmentally-friendly choices.

Students frequently tell us how important a focus on sustainability is to them, as they look to the future and the world that they will graduate into. The University of Lincoln and the Students' Union are committed to working together towards our common goal for an innovative, collaborative, and dedicated approach to tackling climate change.

Supporting Sustainable Transport

The University of Lincoln is undertaking a rolling programme of investment to improve the sustainable transport options around our Brayford Pool Campus. This includes secure cycle parking areas, including lockable cycle compounds, and plans to enhance pedestrian routes around the Brayford Campus as part of a landscaping masterplan.

The Environment and Sustainability team are in the process of updating the University Travel Plan, examining how students, staff, and visitors can travel to the University using sustainable methods. The Estates team are also working closely with partners at Lincolnshire County Council to develop sustainable transport policies.

The University conducts regular travel surveys of its students and staff. The aim of the surveys is to identify and prioritise transport investment requirements, obtain views on how transport systems are working, and to collect basic travel data.
