Welcome to the University of Essex 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 the University of Essex compete to save energy and recycle and at the end of the year the hall that saved the most energy and recycled the best gets a free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giveaway!
Interesting, how can I win stuff?
To help your hall win just save energy and recycle where possible over the year by following our simple energy-saving tips. We also give away individual prizes over the year such as Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!), NUS extra cards and SU club tickets etc.. These are given out to students who get involved in our photo competitions that run every 2-3 weeks.
