Reusable to-go cups are explicitly permitted at the coffee machines in the dining halls and cafeterias of the Studentenwerk. The use of returnable cups not only benefits the environment, but also your own wallet: every cup of coffee saves 10 ct compared to using a disposable cup.

Second hand items | Furniture exchange
- You can find second hand items at the"Schwarzes Brett" on StudIP: household devices, furniture, books and more.
- The university's exchange for purchasable equipment can be used to pass on equipment and furniture that is no longer needed but still functional. The contact person can be found in the right-hand column of the website.
The UMG (medical technology department, division 3-53) also has various used devices in its stock which can be purchased.
Contact person: Mr. Wille (Tel.: 9551) or Mr. Böhm (Tel.: 12705)
A simple step towards sustainable procurement is to switch to recycled paper. If additional paper is saved by
- avoiding unnecessary printing,
- using the duplex function and
- re-using paper with misprints as notepaper,
your department has already become much more sustainable.
More information on recycled paper and its procurement at the university can be found here.
Exchange of chemicals, "Chemikalienbörse"
Residues of laboratory chemicals that are no longer used can be offered and searched for at the "Chemikalienbörse" of the staff unit Safety/Environmental Protection.
Energy-intensive refrigerators and freezers
The staff unit Safety/Environmental Protection, together with experts from many fields, has developed the leaflet "Stromfresser Kühl- und Gefriergeräte".
