The University of Nottingham is celebrating after receiving two Green Flag Awards for our Jubilee and University Park campuses.
The award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces and the university joins 2,208 UK winners.
After two years that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that the university has achieved two Green Flag Awards is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.
Keep Britain Tidy’s Accreditation Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making the University of Nottingham worthy of two Green Flag Awards.
“Both Jubilee Campus and University Park Campus are vital green spaces for the community in Nottingham.
This award is testament to all the hard work of staff and volunteers, who do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
University Park has had 18 consecutive Green Flags to its name over the years and attracts students and visitors to its large leafy campus. It boasts an impressive mix of landscape features, including a variety of tree species, wildflower meadows and contemporary gardens, including the Millennium Garden and Jekyll Garden.
Jubilee campus has also received the Green Flag award consistently since 2017. It was established in 1999 when a former industrial site was regenerated into a thriving environmentally friendly campus with a strong emphasis on sustainability. Four lakes provide diverse wildlife habitats as well as peaceful areas where people can pause and reflect.
