Beyond technological improvements IT Services is committed to sustainability across our organisation.

Visit the new Sustainable IT webpage to learn about the initiatives we're implementing to minimise our carbon footprint and promote environmental responsibility.

These initiatives include: 

  • Encouraging staff and students to use alternatives to printing where they can, and educating them on how to avoid spoiled prints
  • Choosing a renewable home for our high-performance compute facility Viking
  • Creating a process which shuts down equipment in PC classrooms when they’re not being used during vacations
  • Auditing our data centres to remove old and inefficient switches, tracking down department owners of servers and decommissioning equipment which is no longer needed
  • Adding the Ecosia search engine to all classroom PCs
