Green spaces

If you want to get out into the great outdoors there are a number of public green spaces on campus for everyone to enjoy.

A highlight is our sustainable garden with fresh food intended to be picked. Instructions of what to pick and how are available around the garden, which can be found next to the Roger Stevens Building.

Anyone can join in with regular gardening sessions - you can find details on our sustainability site.
