TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUTING SURVEY

Completing this survey will help the University of Winnipeg better understand the needs of students, faculty and staff commuting to-and-from the campus. Your input is greatly valued and the results will be used to help develop strategies and potentially provide you with more commuting-related options.

It will take about 5 minutes to complete and asks questions about how you travel to and from campus. Responses to the survey are anonymous and confidential.

The survey is open to current students, faculty and staff of the University of Winnipeg and can be accessed online.

WASTE INFRASTRUCTURE RENEWAL

New waste sorting station in the Richardson Building

Our office, in partnership with Physical Plant, is undertaking a multi-phase project to improve waste diversion on campus. The first phase of this process was a review of public spaces, including the installation of 48 new waste sorting stations on campus, greatly increasing the number of locations for composting. The second phase will focus on office-level waste diversion, and we look forward to working with the University community to help us achieve our targets! If you have any questions or feedback, please send it along to sustainability@uwinnipeg.ca or call 204.988.7618.
