Sustainability in Halls

Are you living in halls of residence?  Your hall is a great place to start if you want make a difference to sustainability at LSE. Every year we recruit enthusiastic Residences Sustainability Champions, to champion environmental initiatives in halls.

The Champions work closely with their hall committee to make sure projects like Student Switch Off, Green Impact, and Relove are a resounding success.

The hall saving the most energy over the year wins recognition and prizes! Students work together to cut their energy use and get Ben and Jerry's ice-cream, vouchers and prizes galore in return.
Get involved by joining the LSE Student Switch-Off Facebook group. 
Green Impact in Halls
You can join your hall's Green Impact team to implement a series of sustainable actions to achieve a Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Excellence Green Impact Award! Contact your hall's Green Impact Leader to join the Green Impact team, or contact Sustainability Engagement Officer Madeleine Dwyer.
LSE's Relove project saves 7 tonnes of items from landfill every year. When students move out of halls they donate items to Relove. These items are stored over summer and are offered to new students at the beginning of the new year. All the funds raised go into the School's Sustainable Projects Fund.

Making progress in sustainability


"The Residential and Catering Services Division is committed to continually improving its environmental performance. It does this through the provision of recycling facilities, reuse schemes and raising awareness on waste reduction. It encourages environmentally responsible purchasing practices by all who work within the division and who live in the halls of residence."

Ian Spencer, Director, Residential Services


Residential Services support the School's environmental aims, with a particular commitment to the aims of the Carbon Management Plan.

Every year the halls of residence compete on a range of sustainability impacts. Their performance is measured across a range of areas such as waste reused and recycled during the 'ReLove' events, the amount of energy consumption used  per student bed, and the reduction of energy use during Student Switch Off. Make sure you play your part in delivering sustainable excellence and continuously improving the results!
