Sustainability

Biodiversity

The University is rightly proud of its garden campuses and places high value on the quality of its gardens for the well-being of its staff and student.  We will continue to manage the Estate in a manner to enhance and create urban green spaces which are inspiring, aesthetically pleasing, welcoming and accessible; and to protect and support biodiversity. 

The University campuses cover over 25 hectares of which two thirds are grounds and gardens.  This offers great facilities for all aspects of staff and student life, with open spaces, gardens and sports areas; there is a mixture of well-maintained lawned areas; shrub and flower borders; and gardens in which to sit, study or relax.  The University seeks to avoid the use of materials that threaten species or environments and aims to improve the natural habitat through appropriate planting and water use, and the avoidance of chemicals that can lead to environmental harm. 

Did you know?

  • Two-thirds of Hope Park’s 620 trees are covered by a Tree Preservation Order which keeps and protects woodland, trees and groups of trees which add to the character and appearance of the area and where they offer protection to natural wildlife habitats. 
  • There are over 50 species of tree at Hope Park
  • The Creative Campus’s Angel Field – the award-winning Renaissance style garden was described by Country Life Magazine as '...one of the best examples of conceptual landscape design in the country'.
  • Plas Caerdeon is set in 7 hectares of secluded mixed deciduous woodland grounds, overlooking the beautiful Mawddach Estuary. 
  • The Woodland Trust have launched a Tree ID app to help identify all the UK's native trees and many non-native trees you'll find when out and about in the British countryside throughout the seasons; why not use it to discover the variety of trees on campus using our Hope Park Campus Tree Walk.

What can I do?

  • Place a pot plant in your office – having pot plants in your office can assist in boosting well-being, creativity and productivity
  • Join us on the Hope Park allotment at lunchtime for some fresh air, planting, digging and harvesting

Initiatives

  • Garden waste (including prunings and grass cuttings) are used to produce compost and mulching materials
  • The use of pesticides and herbicides are minimised
  • The use of peat is avoided
  • Both native and exotic species are planted
  • Removal of invasive laurel and rhododendrons at Plas Caerdeon
