Student Switch Off goes from strength to strength

The Student Switch Off campaign is going from strength to strength. Are you taking part?

The Student Switch Off campaign at NTU has been going from strength to strength and as 2015 begins we're looking forward to handing over more prizes to students who've been saving energy in their halls. Over the autumn, more than 500 students signed up to the campaign and pledged to save energy in their hall. Over 300 students also took part in our Climate Change Quiz.

The hall that saves the most energy this year will be winning a big delivery of Ben & Jerry's ice cream and the competition is hotting up. Gill Street Hall are currently in the lead but its very close, so there is still all to play for!

Get Competitive and Win!

Get involved in helping your hall to save the most energy and push them up the leaderboard:

  • Turn off your lights when not needed
  • Wear extra layers rather than turning the heating up
  • Put a lid on your pan when you're cooking
  • Unplug your phone chargers when your phone's battery is full
  • Unplug other appliances and equipment when you're not using them.

Like our Facebook page and start participating in our photo competitions, pick up some great energy saving tips and win yourself some prizes!

Who's been winning?

Guinny from Brackenhurst won a tub of Ben & Jerry's in October after posting a photo of herself putting a lid on a pan to save energy. 

Bethany from Hampden Hall won a pair of cinema tickets in November after posting a photo of her wearing extra layers instead of turning up the heating.

Want to get involved?

We're always on the lookout for enthusiastic students who can help support the campaign by becoming Student Switch Off Ambassadors. This is a voluntary role and is suitable for anyone who is interested in environmental issues or wants to gain some campaigning and marketing experience.
