Mission Statement

By 2030, UL will build student accommodation that integrates the practices, behaviours and infrastructure of sustainable development into the everydaylives of students.
Having a safe and healthy place to live is a foundational human need – it affects all others aspects of our lives. This mission sees UL strive to provide access to high-quality accommodation to learners who seek to learn how to live a sustainable lifestyle. In doing so, learners will be given the opportunity to adopt sustainable behaviours during their time studying at UL.
