• Water

    Water efficiency showers, taps and toilets are installed in all buildings at Oxford Brookes to help reduce water use. We also use smart water meters to find hidden water leaks that can waste millions of litres of water per year. Rainwater harvesting at our Headington campus and Clive Booth Student Centre capture rainwater for use in toilets and irrigation. See our Water Strategy and Water Reduction Action Plan for more information. We also provide free drinking water at all of our catering outlets and other locations throughout our campuses. Bring a refillable water bottle and help reduce the amount of plastic waste generated from single-use water bottles.

  • FACT: Although the UK is known for its rain, it has less available water per person than most European countries.
