Welcome to the University of Southampton Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and a Ben & Jerry’s party 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 Southampton compete to save energy and at the end of the year the hall that saved the most gets a free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream party!

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 make sure you are recycling everything that can be recycled. We also give away individual prizes over the year such as Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!) and cinema tickets. These are given out to students who get involved in our photo competitions which run every 2-3 weeks.
