The Great Student Switch Off

Monday 14 September 2015 NUS News

Are you going to university this month? Get into energy saving habits, and we’ll give you ice cream. Seriously.

We’re about to hit the road, visiting dozens of welcome weeks across the country to launch this year’s Student Switch Off campaign. Find out if your university is taking part, and like the relevant Facebook page to take part.

All you have to do is take simple energy saving actions in your halls, like putting on jumpers instead of the heating, putting lids on your pans, and only boiling the water you need. Then we reward the biggest energy savers with ice cream and other prizes.

Working across the UK, Student Switch Off helps thousands of you to cut loads of carbon, while helping you to form habits which will save you money once you end up living in private accommodation.

Find out if your university is taking part, and get ready to save energy and win prizes with Student Switch Off this year. Look out for us at your welcome week.
