Eco Living

Here are some examples of what we do as a company to make UWE Houses more green:

  • Our Fishponds office has electric solar panels and an air source heat pump installed for heating
  • A range of fully electric vehicles
  • Electricity supplied to all our houses comes from renewable sources
  • Solar panels installed on many of our south-facing houses
  • High rated boilers with adjustable thermostats & time controls.  All our radiators can be individually controlled
  • Energy efficient air source heat pump systems installed in two recently refurbished houses
  • Our homes are well insulated, with many of them exceeding the standard efficiency for rental properties
  • Smart meters to track energy usage and save time submitting readings

Bills such as utilities and broadband are included in your rent and details of what is included can be found below.

We Manage All Your Bills

The cost of utilities is included in your rent; we pay your gas, electricity, water bills, internet charges and TV licence (subject to a 'fair usage' policy).  This takes away lots of stress and hassle for you so you can relax in the knowledge it's all taken care of.

As part of our care for the environment, we would always encourage you to be responsible with your use of gas and electricity.  There is a fair usage policy in place to prevent excessive energy use and we monitor this on a monthly basis through your meter readings.  

* Council tax is NOT included in your rent.

Please check your course start and finish dates as you are liable for council tax outside of these dates.

Full time students are exempt from council tax for the duration of their course. If you are a 3rd year student, Bristol City Council will charge you council tax from the date your course officially ends until the last day of your contract.

For council tax enquiries, please visit the Bristol Council Website. For Wright Way council tax enquiries, please visit the South Glos Website
