Green Campus
Our beautiful 300-acre campus is situated in green area, 3 Kilometres from Isfahan city centre. Sustainability is at the heart of our campus plan with more than 10,000 trees, new buildings that reduce environmental impact, and plenty of green spaces to relax and socialise with friends.
 
 
As a university, we hold people, the planet and all living things in the highest regard. Our strategy commits us to reducing our environmental impact and improving sustainability across the institution. Our major environmental strategic priority for 2021 to 2025 is sustain - we are committed to making a positive environmental impact and contributing to a sustainable future. This is reflected across the institution.
 
 Reuse, Recycling and Waste
The University is committed to reducing the total amount of waste produced through the running of campus services. We work with our staff, students, visitors and procurement team to achieve these reductions. Alongside waste reduction, we have set ourselves the ambitious recycling target of 70%.
The current academic year of 2021/22 has seen the recovery of recycling rates to pre Covid-19 levels which the University views as a great success considering the radical behavioural changes due to the pandemic.
Since 2005, the University has not sent any waste to landfill instead waste which cannot be recycled.
We operate a two-bin system across campus and in halls of residence for dry-mixed recycling, and food waste. Food waste from halls, residences, catering outlets and office kitchens is sent for anaerobic digestion. We also collect other forms of materials that cannot go into conventional recycling streams through Terracycle and Reworked recycling schemes, this includes items such as stationery, PPE (face masks), corks and crisp packets.
