Welcome to the Newcastle University Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and a Ben & Jerry’s delivery for your residence, all for doing easy things to save energy and protect the environment.
Ben & Jerry’s for my hall?
Yep! All the halls at Newcastle compete to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that gets most involved in the campaign wins big Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giveaway!
Interesting, how can I win stuff?
To help your hall win just save energy where possible over the year by following our simple energy-saving tips and get get involved in our online climate change quizzes (see the ‘quiz’ tab). We also give away individual prizes over the year such as Ben & Jerry’s (half litre tubs!) and NUS extra cards. These are given out to students who get involved in our photo competitions that run every 2-3 weeks.
