Is your office energy efficient? IT and Library Services

By adopting these simple measures as a matter of routine, you will make a real contribution to reducing the significant rising electricity costs to the University and help the environment.

1. Turn off your computer at night and weekend.

All computers bought for the University since March 2007 have inbuilt energy saving features and the computers in the student labs are set to automatically power off at night when not being used. For staff computers, please remember to log out and turn off at night, also including any printers and other devices e.g. monitor, copier, scanner (and the office lights!).

2. Avoid printing if possible.

View your documents on the computer screen and only print if you really need to. Note some printers have double sided capability you can use.
