Welcome to the DMU Student Switch Off campaign.
Student Switch Off (SSO) is a sustainability campaign and competition running at De Montfort University. The campaign supports and encourages students to take actions to increase their positive environmental impact, from saving energy, saving water and recycling, to reducing plastic-use and lobbying for bigger changes
If you live in Bede Halls, Filbert Village, The Grange, Newarke Point or New Wharf you are automatically taking part in the competition.
