RU opens twelve new electric charging points on campus


Students and employees at Reykjavik University can now charge their electric and plug-in hybrid cars at twelve new charging points next to the University building. The charging points have been set up in cooperation with the service company Hlaða ehf.

Those who wish to charge their cars should register online at Users get two hours free of charge from RU but after that a fee must be paid for each hour used.

The opening of the charging points is among the many activities the RU student environmental group and RU staff have suggested in connection with the University´s agreement with Festa and the city of Reykjavik regarding climate change and the implementation of the UN PRME goals about the education of responsible leaders.

RU emphasises environmental matters and strives to make the University operations sustainable. Among other recent efforts are the elimination of plastic cups and more thorough recycling processes.
