Student Switch Off

Living in Halls of Residence on campus?

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes including Ben & Jerry's ice cream, as well as prizes for your hall, all for doing easy things like saving energy and recycling.

The hall that saves the most energy and separates most waste for recycling 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. 

Win prizes

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

Take part in the photo competitions throughout the year for a chance to win great prizes including NUS TOTUM cards and big tubs of Ben and Jerry's.
