Student Switch Off

Living in Halls of Residence on campus?

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and Ben & Jerry's ice cream 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 an end of year party with Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

All on-campus managed Halls 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 Extra cards and big tubs of Ben and Jerry's.

Ambassador training

Enthusiastic and environmentally-minded students living in on campus halls are invited to attend Student Switch Off Ambassador training. You can expect to develop skills in communication, social media and environmental campaigning - and all attendees get a free t-shirt!
