Welcome to the University of Bath Student Switch Off

Student Switch Off is your chance to win prizes for yourself and a beer & curry night for your hall, all for doing easy things to save energy.

Beer & curry for my hall?

Yep! All the halls at Bath competed to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that saved the most got a beer & curry night, and free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!

How do I win Ben and Jerry’s?

We had loads of great prizes to give out in our photo competitions, like Ben and Jerry’s (big tubs!), comedy club tickets and NUS Extra cards. These ran once a fortnight and usually involved just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook fanpage. Simple! There were lots of other competitions as well.

2015/16 results…

We added up the energy saving for the year 2015/16 and John Wood Court F won the competition.  The tops halls were invited to celebrate in style with beer and curry for all students signed up to Student Switch Off. All the halls did really well and overall enough energy was saved to…

  • Keep 78 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere
  • Keep a 15W energy-saving lightbulb on for 1,100 years!
  • Boil 4.5 million cups of tea!
