Kingston University's practices tie in with the United Nations SDGs, which aim to transform our world and promote prosperity for all while protecting our planet. The University's policy on water consumption supports:
We recognise that many aspects of our operations use water, and therefore we are committed to reducing water use and promoting water efficiency. Kingston University provides free drinking water at out catering outlets and other locations across our campus sites. Please remember to carry a re-usable water bottle with you to help reduce the generation of single-use plastic waste.
Water saving devices such as low flow taps and flushing toilets and waterless urinals have been installed across our campus sites including the Services Building, Town House, Knights Park Tower Block and the New Extension.
The Estates and Sustainability Team actively monitor water usage to identify and fix leaks within buildings and below ground. Did you know a dripping tap can waste up to 10,000 litres of water per year? That's more than one full bath tub each week!
We communicate the importance of saving water through our through our Student Switch Off projects.
