Welcome to University of Stirling 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 Stirling are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most will win a fantastic garden 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!) and other great prizes. These run once a month 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.
