Welcome to the Lancaster University Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to fight climate change and win prizes for yourself & your college, all for doing easy things to save energy.
Interesting, how can I win?
To help your college win just save energy 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 and TOTUM cards. These are given out to students who get involved in our social media competitions that run every 2-3 weeks. Like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram (@studentswitchoff) and Twitter (@nus_switchoff) for a chance to win!
Volunteer with us
With over 7,000 students living in college accommodation, we need all the help we can get in spreading the energy-saving message. Every year we train volunteers with transferable skills on communication, team-work and campaigning and these Ambassadors encourage their friends and flat-mates to save energy wherever possible through events and knowledge-sharing. If you’d like to be one of our fantastic Ambassadors, sign-up for our training on 7th November here.
Who’s taking part?
All residents of on-campus accommodation are automatically taking part in the competition, whichever college you’re living in! Students living off-campus in private accommodation aren’t taking part in the competition, but it’s still really important to save energy to reduce your carbon footprint (and keep your bills low!).
