Student Switch Off

Living in halls on campus?

Student Switch Off is a sustainability campaign running at the University of Nottingham which supports and encourages students living in halls to save energy and water, as well as recycle.

The hall that saves the most energy and separates most waste for recycling also wins a huge end of year delivery of ice cream!

Text on a pink background reads: Switch Off, Save Energy, Win! with a picture of someone holding an ice cream


All catered halls on campus as well as Melton hall are taking part to see which hall can save the most energy and improve recycling. The leaderboard is based on historic performance of the hall, so each September is a fresh start for the halls. 

Get involved

There are lots of Student Switch Off competitions and events throughout the year which you can see on the University of Nottingham Student Switch Off Facebook page. You can find out more about the programme and how to save energy on the Student Switch Off website

You can complete the Student Switch Off pledge to let us know what you will do to reduce energy use and waste where you live, as well as receive sustainability tips and campaign updates.
