Our sustainability activities raise awareness and implement environmentally friendly solutions within both campuses at Uxbridge College.

These solutions are promoted under a scheme called ecollegey. Activities include:

ecollegey_leaves_20mpAutomatic sensors in both campuses in various rooms that switch off lights when no-one is in a room

ecollegey_raindrop_20mpAutomatic switch off of all student computers at 9pm every day

ecollegey_recycle_20mpOver 90% of the paper we use for printing and photocopying at Uxbridge College is from recycled paper

ecollegey_world_20mp17% of the Uxbridge Campus’s heating and hot water is provided by Biomass and Ground Source Heat Pumps resulting in lower emissions

ecollegey_leaves_20mpOur Sports Hall and North Block at Uxbridge are highly efficient buildings, well insulated and require minimal heat and cooling

ecollegey_raindrop_20mpBoth campuses provide recycling bins for plastics, cans and paper

ecollegey_recycle_20mpThe Display Energy Certificate (DEC) rating for the Uxbridge Campus is very good at 54 and Hayes Campus is 91 – the typical rating is 100
