Welcome to Wolverhampton Student Switch Off

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

Prize for my hall?

Yep! All the halls at Wolves are competing to save energy and recycle and at the end of the year the hall that’s saved the most gets Ben & Jerry’s and pizza for everyone! To help your hall come top make sure you follow our four energy saving tips and recycle as much as you can!


Your kitchen has two bins;  one for landfill and one for recycling. We’ll be round to visit each kitchen twice over the year and each time we’ll leave you some chocolate if your using the bins correctly and you’ll get a score that will help your hall win the overall competition.

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 NUS extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve just uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page. Simple! There are lots of other competitions as well, so get on the email list and “Like” the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.

2015/16 results

We’ve been keeping track of the energy savings and recycling scores over the year and Walsall Gorway M&N were this year’s winners. Energy savings across all halls averaged 17.1% and helped to keep 41 tonnes of CO2 out the atmosphere (enough energy to boil the kettle over 2.3 million times!).

You can see the full leaderboard here.
