Greening our F(l)eet

In the past decade, The University of Dundee has seen a lot of redevelopment taking place on campus.

Green space has been created right at its heart with the new Campus Green, a major element of the masterplan which envisages a car-free campus.

The University has successfully turned its car friendly campus into a low carbon and emissions campus, that is now more pedestrian and cyclist friendly which has brought many benefits to the University.

Having a greener city centre campus has resulted in better air quality due to less emissions and more green areas. This has increased the sense of well-being for staff, students and visitors to campus. It has also made people more aware of their attractive campus and resulted in less litter.
