Welcome to DMU 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.

De Montfort Student Switch Off

Want to win Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, NUS Extra cards and nights out for helping to tackle climate change? Then sign up to the Student Switch Off inter-hall energy-saving competition.

What is Student Switch Off?

The Student Switch Off rewards the hall which saves the most energy by the end of the year with a big Ben and Jerry’s giveaway!  On top of this you can bag prizes all for yourself (and your flatmates if you like sharing!) by submitting an energy-saving themed photo in the Facebook competitions that run every few weeks.

How do you make your halls win?

Easy – pledge to take simple energy saving actions:

  • Switching off lights and appliances
  • Putting a lid on pans when cooking
  • Only filling the kettle with the water needed
  • Putting on an extra layer rather than turning on the heating.

Collectively the small energy-saving actions add up to big energy savings.
