The Property Services Division manages the University's energy consumption, and is committed to helping the University become a community and national leader in terms of energy efficiency and power saving. A campus-wide strategy aims to:

  • Upgrade and improve heating systems
  • Improve the building management control system (BMS) in order to increase staff comfort and reduce energy waste
  • See new structures such as the Hunter Building and the Psychology 3 Building built according to state-of-the-art sustainable designs
  • Encourage all members of the University community to 'think green' by taking simple steps to cut power usage across all campuses

Building energy consumption across campuses over time is shown in the graph:
