Cycle Friendly Employer For those living close enough, it makes good sense to get your walking shoes on and travel to campus on foot. Depending on which part of Swansea you’re living in, there are some stunning walking routes into uni and there’s no better way to get your daily steps in.

Walking is a fantastic form of gentle exercise, it’s great for your physical and mental wellbeing and it won’t cost you a penny! And when you’re not studying, you should try making your other local journeys on foot too. (more…)

Rock and roll hand with red background Wales is currently third best in the world at recycling. It’s something to be proud of, but we can’t stop there!

92% of people in Wales recycle. We need the power of Swansea University students to keep Wales Mighty for our community, our country and our planet.

To make it to number 1 and become a zero-waste nation by 2050, we need to ramp up our recycling efforts from home.

That’s why Swansea University is supporting the third burst of Be Mighty. Recycle campaign. Coinciding with Global Recycling Day on 18th March and running until 24th March, we’ll be sharing recycling information, top tips and running virtual events to help you maximise your recycling at home, whether you live on or off campus.

Find out how you can maximise your recycling efforts on our Sustainability webpages and join the conversation online using the campaign hashtag #BeMightyRecycle

That’s why Swansea University is backing the UK’s first ever Food Waste Action Week, from 1st to 7th March.  (more…)
