Welcome to Aston University Student Switch Off

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

Party for my hall?

Yep! All the halls at Aston are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most gets a party! We’ll also be monitoring your recycling throughout the year so you’ll need to work together with your flatmates to win the prizes. To help your hall come top make sure you follow our four energy saving tips.

How do I win Ben and Jerry’s?

We’ve got loads of great prizes to give out in our photo competitions, including Ben and Jerry’s, Aston campus meal vouchers and NUS Extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page. Simple! There are lots of other competitions as well so get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.

Current leaderboard

We’re half way through this year’s Student Switch Off and we’ve put together a leaderboard of how the halls are doing based on how much energy you’ve been saving and how involved your hall has been getting in our competitions and quizzes. Whoever is winning at Easter will be rewarded with an end of year party so keep up your energy saving efforts, if you’re not top right now don’t worry it’s close! Here’s the full leaderboard…

1st -    Lakeside
2nd –   Mary Sturge
3rd –   William Murdoch
4th –   Harriet Martineau
5th –   James Watt
Saving energy is easy and we’ll be giving out lots of prizes, like Ben and Jerry’s, Aston campus meal vouchers and NUS Extra cards, in our photo competitions and quizzes to give you some encouragement. If you haven’t already, join our email list or our Facebook group to find out how to win!
