We are Student Switch Off: our vision is a world where students are empowered to take action against climate change, starting with simple energy saving behaviours. 

What’s Student Switch Off?
An inter-college, climate action, competition. We’re a university campaign and many of the colleges here at Cambridge are part of it. SSO gives you the chance to win prizes for yourself, a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream delivery for your college, as well as a final year prize of £250 towards your end of year college party, all while doing easy things to save energy and reduce your negative impact on the environment.

So I can win prizes?
Yes – show us how you save energy by getting involved in our competitions (launched on Facebook & Instagram throughout the year) and you could win Ben & Jerry’s vouchers, or TOTUM student discount cards. The college that engages with the campaign the most throughout the year will also win the overall prize – the SSO Trophy AND £250 towards your end of year college event!

How do I get involved?
Check if your college is part of the campaign this year in the leaderboard tab. If it is, you’re automatically part of the campaign  (all you have to do is start saving energy), but to really get going be sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram, this way you can see campaign updates, tips for sustainable living, and voluntary opportunities we have on offer. If you download the TOTUM app you’ll also get alerts about the campaign and other offers and activities for students happening locally.
