The University of Nottingham


Welcome to the University of Nottingham Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and massive delivery of Ben & Jerry’s for your hall, all for doing easy things to help the environment!

Ben & Jerry’s for my hall?
Yep! All the University of Nottingham halls are competing to see who can be the best for energy-saving and recycling. At the end of the academic year the hall that has been the greenest will receive a massive delivery of ice cream as a reward! To help your hall come top make sure you follow our energy-saving tips!

Interesting, how can I win stuff?
As well as the communal prize, we’ve got loads of great prizes to give out at the individual level in our photo competitions, like more Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!) and NUS extra discount cards. These competitions run once every 2-3 weeks and usually involve uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page. It really is as simple as that!! There are lots of other competitions as well so make get on the email list and like the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.
