Green Flag success for Nottingham campuses

The University of Nottingham has once again secured prestigious Green Flag awards — the mark of a quality park or green space — for both its Jubilee and University Park campuses.

Nottingham was the first university to be awarded a Green Flag in 2003 for University Park and this campus has now received the award for 15 years in a row.

It is the fifth year that the Jubilee campus has also received the accolade.

Our University campuses are among a record-breaking 1,797 UK parks and green spaces that have received a prestigious Green Flag award this year.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Andy Sweeney, Director of Estates (Operations) at the University of Nottingham, said: “We are delighted that our University Park and Jubilee campuses continue to be recognised as worthy of a Green Flag award. It’s a testimony to the hard work and dedication of our Grounds team who create and maintain such wonderful spaces that enhance biodiversity and the University’s commitment to a sustainable place to work and study.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
