Student Switch Off NUS Ben & Jerry's Carbon Leapfrog Degrees Cooler NUS Extra Image Map

Welcome to Cardiff University Student Switch Off

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and a party for your hall, all for recycling well and doing easy things to save energy and water.

Party for my hall?

Yep! Your hall will be competing to be the greenest by saving energy and recycling the best, with the winning hall getting thrown a party and given a big delivery of Ben & Jerry’s! To help your hall come top make sure you follow our four energy saving tips, check for what can and can’t be recycled and be careful with the water you use!

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!), SU Clubnight tickets, LUSH gifts 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, get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook group so you don’t miss out.
