At the University (and in most of the UK) tap water is perfectly potable and cold most of the year. For water coolers, in addition to the initial costs and on-going maintenance costs we also have to account for the electricity consumption for cooling the water with the associated carbon emissions. In the interests of sustainability, before making arrangements for a water cooler and if you haven't already, please kindly consider whether a water cooler is required.
If a water cooler is required, in the first instance please look to install a mains-fed water dispenser. If a mains-fed water dispenser is not feasible, you may order a standalone water cooler.
Mains-Fed Water Dispensers
In the first instance, please contact the Estates Procurement department for mains-fed water dispensers.
