University of Sheffield


Welcome to the University of Sheffield 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 residence?
Yep! All the residences at Sheffield compete to save energy and at the end of the year the residence that saved the most energy gets a free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giveaway!

Interesting, how can I win stuff?
To help your residence 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 (half litre tubs!), NUS extra cards and lots of SU treats such as coffee revolution vouchers. These are given out to students who get involved in our photo competitions that run every 2-3 weeks.
