Welcome to BCU Student Switch Off

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and a huge prize for your hall, all for doing easy things to save energy.

Party for my hall?

Yep! All the halls at BCU are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most gets a big prize! 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!), Propaganda tickets, LUSH Gift Boxes 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.

Results last year…

We added up the energy saving for 2011/12 and City South Campus won by saving an epic 22%. As their prize they got some outdoor seating for thier hall. But all the halls did really well and overall electricity use in halls was reduced by over 17% which is enough to

  • Keep 54 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere
  • Keep a 15W energy-saving lightbulb on for 775 years!
  • Boil 3,180,844 million cups of tea!
