Welcome to UCL 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 and recycle.
Party for my hall?
Yep! All the halls at UCL are competing to save energy and recycle and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most energy per person and recycled the best gets a pizza and Ben & Jerry’s party! 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, like Ben and Jerry’s (big tubs!), bowling at Bloomsbury Lanes, LUSH gift boxes, cinema tickets, and NUS Extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the facebook group. Simple! There are lots of other competitions as well, get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook group so you don’t miss out.
Over the year we’ve looked at which halls have done the best at our recycling audits, at getting engaged with our training session and quizzes and in using less electricity than in previous years.

We hope you’ve learnt lots this year about saving energy, recycling and tackling climate change – if you’re moving into a rented house next year then you’ll want to keep your bills low. Check out our advice online (just follow this link – http://goo.gl/Ak73dH) for how to make that happen.
