Welcome to Staffordshire University Student Switch Off

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

Free Ben & Jerry’s for my hall?

Yep! The halls at Staffordshire University are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most will win a big deliver of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! 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!), NUS Extra cards, and freebies from the student’s union. 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 add yourself to the email list and “Like” the Facebook Fanpage so you don’t miss out.

Last year’s winners

In 2015/16 Norbury hall came top of the Student Switch Off League table!

Across the programme last academic year the halls across Staffordshire University reduced their electricity use by over 2%, saving enough energy to:

– Keep  10 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere

– Keep a 15W energy-saving lightbulb on for 136 years

– Boil the kettle for over 500 THOUSAND cups of tea!
