Welcome to Nottingham Trent University Student Switch Off

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and a Ben & Jerry’s party for your courtyard/ block, all for doing easy things to help the environment!




Ben & Jerry’s for my hall?

Yep! All the NTU and UPP managed halls are competing to save the most energy  and at the end of the year the hall that have saved the most energy  will receive a Ben & Jerry’s giveaway! To help your hall come top make sure you follow our four energy saving tips.

How do I win Ben & Jerry’s?

As well as the communal prize, we’ve got loads of great prizes to give out at the individual level in our photo competitions, like more Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!), Lush Cosmetics and NUS Extra cards. These run once every 2-3 weeks and usually involve uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page. It really is as simple as that!! There are lots of other competitions as well so make get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.
