Information for external contacts/non-UU staff & students
We do not share surveys aimed at the UU community unless it is from someone within our community – we get too many requests for this. Please send an email to email@example.com if you wish to interview someone from the university. Be as specific as possible, so we know how to help you as best as we can.
If there is a sustainability-related vacancy at your organisation, feel free to share it with us through firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the number of similar offers reaching us, we will share them through our communication channels.
The goal of Green Office Utrecht University is to work together with our community in the field of sustainable development at Utrecht University. Collaborations with external companies or organisations do not fall under this scope, and we are therefore unable to accept such requests.

Green Office Utrecht University falls under the Sustainability Office of Utrecht University, and we can therefore not sign manifestos, pledges, petitions or similar proposals.
Utrecht University works with tender-contracts, so Green Office Utrecht University cannot buy your sustainable products. For more information on these contracts, visit UU's purchasing and tendering centre.
It is a university-wide policy that UU-locations can only be used for events with an educational purpose – it is therefore not possible to host drinks at Green Office Utrecht University.
