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.

2014/15 Results

Over the year we’ve looked at which halls have done the best at getting engaged with our training session and quizzes and in using less electricity than in previous years.

Lakeside did brilliantly at both engagement and saving energy and are this year’s winners! Here’s the full leaderboard….

1st – Lakeside
2nd – Mary Sturge
3rd – James Watt
4th – William Murdoch
5th – Harriet Martineau

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) for how to make that happen.
