There are 19 Resident Associations at the University of Manchester, which comprise of current students in halls who are elected by their peers to represent the needs of 34 halls of residence. The “Your Halls Green Fund” has been created to provide Resident Associations within the University’s 9200 residential bedrooms with the opportunity to bid for funding associated with sustainability projects.
The fund is created by directing ~£1 per week from every residents’ accommodation fees into a separate fund. The fund is then available for environmental initiatives that students believe their halls could benefit from, such as energy efficiency schemes (e.g. LED lighting and insulation projects), cycle shelters and biodiversity projects.
