Switch off before you take off

Shut down and switch off what you can over the break and help save unnecessary energy use at UOW. Refer to information and tips on what you can switch off and use an "I'm off for Christmas" poster on any shared items that you switch off, so staff know when they return that the item has been deliberately switched off over the Christmas break.  Download the I'm off for Christmas poster (PDF) or request a copy from the Environment Unit.

The Facilities Management Division wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and fabulous New Year.
