Welcome to the UAL Student Switch Off

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


Party for my hall?

Yep! The halls at UAL are competing to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most gets a party! 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!), Cass Art vouchers and NUS Extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto your hall’s Facebook page. Simple! There are lots of other competitions as well so get on the email list and “Like” your hall’s Facebook page so you don’t miss out.

Results this year…

We’ve added up the energy saving for the year and Bernard Myers have won the competition! As their prize they have won a party with free food and drink – thank you to UAL Housing for funding a brilliant night. But all the halls did really well and overall electricity use in halls has reduced by over 7.2% which is enough to

  • Keep 31 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere
  • Keep a 15W energy-saving lightbulb on for 438 years!
  • Boil 1.7 million cups of tea!
