Welcome to University of Derby Student Switch Off

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


Party for my hall?

Yep! The halls at University of Derby are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most will win a party to celebrate. 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!), eco gadgets (solar powered phone charger anyone?) and NUS Extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook Fanpage. Simple! There are lots of other competitions as well, so get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook Fanpage so you don’t miss out.
