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

Welcome to the University of Gloucestershire Student Switch Off!

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

Prizes for my block?

Yep! All the blocks at Gloucestershire are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the block that’s saved the most gets a big Ben & Jerry’s delivery! To help your block come top make sure you follow our four energy saving tips. The latest leaderboard is available here.

In addition, the block that gets the most involved in the campaign will also win a big Ben & Jerry’s delivery. This will be judged by the % of each block supporting the campaign, attending SSO Ambassador training, having at go at the climate change quizzes and submitting energy-saving photos. The latest stats for this element of the competition can be viewed here.

How do I win Ben and Jerry’s?

We’ve got loads of great prizes to give out in our photo competitions, like Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!) and NUS extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page. Simple! There are lots of other competitions as well so make sure your on the email list and like the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.
