Abstract Green computing is a critical aspect and consideration for Cardiff Metropolitan University to change the future of the way they recycle at the university and will also change the practices involving the systems within the university. If a Green computing scheme gets more recognised round the world then there could be huge environmental savings which will prevent environmental damage also. The study aimed to research what practices the university currently has and how they make students and staff aware of these. This was achieved by giving out surveys to students and staff to gain feedback about what they know about to assess their awareness and attitudes. A critical literature review was also constructed to see what current practices other organisations implement to see if the university relate to one that they can implement. This dissertation investigates into why students and staff attitudes and awareness of sustainable computing are absent. The dissertation is a case study on what practices can be implemented to the university that are not already in place and the effects that these practices can have to the institution, students, staff and environment. The study concludes that despite the university already have many practices in place regarding sustainable computing that there is not a strong campaign in place that educates students and staff on the subject as they are purely institution based. The study makes recommendations to the university on the basis of this and from depth research awareness of the practices become a critical factor that need to be more available. The study meets the achievements as a small portfolio of feedback was created from the research and recommendations were made at the end of the study for the university.
