Sustainability on our Campuses
We’re lucky to have campuses full of green spaces and wildlife. Two of our campuses have even been awarded a Green Flag, an international mark of quality for parks and green spaces. Find out more about our work to continually enhance and engage with the natural environment on campus.
Following feedback from colleagues and students, we have focused on creating more green space and gardens on our City Campus. This will help us to enhance the biodiversity of our university environment, whilst creating relaxing spaces to study and work.
With 32 hectares of green space, Clifton Campus is the perfect environment for students, colleagues and visitors to enjoy. The campus has been awarded the Green Flag since 2012.
Brackenhurst Campus is at the heart of the university’s Embracing Sustainability strategy. With a vast array of wildlife, and acres of green space, it’s the ideal outdoor classroom. This campus has been awarded a Green Flag since 2012.
NTU registered as a Tree Charter Branch to show our commitment to supporting the principles of the Charter, which aims to secure the future of trees for wildlife and for people. Its launch marks 800 years since the 1217 Charter of the Forest and draws on tree stories shared by over 600,000 people.
NTU continues to lead and participate in a range of tree planting events in pursuit of Sustainable Development Goal 15, Life on Land. Since 2016, we've planted 15,000 trees on our campuses and around the city of Nottingham. Our planting days bring together students, staff and members of the public to create a cultural exchange while we improve the environment of our city.
