Our Campus - The Environment and AUB
Our Campus

This is AUB. A place to shape and build your work; to learn, share, provoke and collaborate.

Biodiversity

We hope to enhance our features to benefit the community and biodiversity to ensure the space and facilities are appropriate of a leading specialist creative institution.

Although we have limited green space, we’re committed to maximising our potential, increasing biodiversity and reaping the health and well-being benefits too.

We’ve got a green roof on the Artsbar, a green wall next to the refectory, solitary bee tubes on the Campus Services building and bird boxes on the grounds. In 2022 we signed up to be a Hedgehog-friendly campus and we'll be seeking volunteers to help us achieve this. We're also aiming to install motion sensor nature cameras around the campus to highlight the biodiversity and wildlife on AUB campus.

Along with the above aspects, we have a Biodiversity action plan in place.
