Student Switch Off

Living in halls of residence on campus?

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and a party for your hall, all for doing easy things like saving energy and recycling.

It's an energy saving and recycling competition that takes place in all University of Nottingham on-campus managed halls.
