Sustainable Campus Initiative: switching off for Christmas closedown


11 December 2013

To save energy and reduce our carbon emissions during the University closedown period (Wednesday 18 December to Wednesday 1 January inclusive) Campus Infrastructure and Services will switch off the air-conditioning and lights in non-essential areas (office and teaching spaces) in a number of buildings across the Camperdown, Darlington and Mallet Street campuses.

Power will remain on in the buildings, but areas serviced by central plant will not be air-conditioned.

How can you help save energy?

In your office, please switch off:

  • lights
  • individual air-conditioning systems
  • computers, monitors and laptops
  • printers
  • photocopiers.

In the kitchen, please switch off:

  • hot water boilers
  • microwaves.


Which buildings will be shut down?

Over the closedown period, the following buildings will have the central plant switched off. You must seek approval from your head of department if you wish to work over this period and require air-conditioning in your building.

When approval is given, please contact cis.sustainablecampus@sydney.edu.au with the dates you will be working. The request must be received before 5pm, Monday, 16 December 2013.
