Welcome to Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) Student Switch Off

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself (and a prize for your hall if you’re in one!), all for doing easy things to save energy.


How do I win Ben and Jerry’s?

All AUB students can win prizes in our photo competitions, like Ben and Jerry’s (big tubs!), 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 so get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook group so you don’t miss out.

Prize for my hall?

Yep! East and West House are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most gets a prize! To help your house come top make sure you follow our four energy saving tips.

2012/13 Result! Congratulations to East House

East House won the 2012-13 Student Switch Off energy-saving competition! Over this academic year electricity usage in the house reduced by 5% compared to usage in previous years. As a reward we gave Ben and Jerry’s to all East House residents! The final result was really close, and together AUB students saved enough energy to boil 28,000 cups of tea!
