Greenwich University rewards

Kerri French - 16 October 2018

BetterPoints Greenwich University is a reward programme for active travel at the University of Greenwich to help students and staff make healthy travel choices as well as to reduce their impact on the environment.

Students and staff can earn BetterPoints for commuting to the University by walking, running and cycling then spend those points on hundreds of high street vouchers or donate them to charity. You will earn 25 BetterPoints for your walking, cycling or running activities of at least half a mile, up to twice a day.

NEW REWARDS - for this academic year. You can also earn points by car sharing to the University with fellow BetterPoints users too! Share your journey and receive a 25 BetterPoints bonus twice a day.

Select the 'play' button and Car Share, scan the QR code with your passenger and away you go! 


This is an opportunity for you to Get Active where you live as well as your active and sustainable travel to the University this summer term.
