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 special reward 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!), 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 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.
