Party for my hall?

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!), Odeon 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 make get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook group so you’ don’t miss out.

2012/13 Results. Congratulations to Lanfranc!

Students living in Lanfranc have won the 2012-13 Student Switch Off energy-saving competition! Over this academic year electricity usage in the hall reduced by 6% compared to usage in previous years.

Lanfranc residents will be getting a massive delivery of Ben and Jerry’s as their reward.

Thanks to everyone across all the halls of residence who have been switching off lights and appliances when not in use, putting lids on pans when cooking, recycling, and not overfilling their kettles. We hope that your energy-saving actions continue next year. Here’s the full leaderboard…

1st – Lanfranc
2nd – Pin Hill
3rd – Northwood
4th – Parham Road

Apologies to St Georges. We couldn’t get the information we needed to include you in this years competition but you did the right thing by switching off anyway!
