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.
Reeward 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 big Ben & Jerry’s giveaway for the whole hall! 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!) 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.
We’ve been adding up the energy savings for 2015-16 and James Lighthill were this year’s winners! Energy savings across all halls helped to keep over 18 tonnes of CO2 out the atmosphere and saved enough energy to boil over 1 million cups of tea so well done to everyone taking part! The full leaderboard can be seen here.
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.
The campaign at UCL is run by Rachel, contact her here if you have any questions or suggestions.
