Welcome to Bournemouth University’s Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and a Ben & Jerry’s delivery for your hall, all for doing easy things to save energy and protect the environment.

Ben & Jerry’s for my hall?

Yep! All the halls at Bournemouth University are competing to save energy and the best hall will be rewarded with a Ben & Jerry’s giveaway at the end of the second term!

Interesting, how can I win stuff?

To help your hall come top, make sure you follow our energy-saving tips. We also give away individual prizes over the year such as Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!), NUS Extra cards and vouchers for local cafes. These are given out to students who get involved in our photo competitions that run every 2-3 weeks.
