Welcome to the University of York Student Switch Off campaign
Student Switch Off is a sustainability campaign running at the University of York which supports and encourages students to live sustainably, with a specific focus on saving energy and water, as well as recycling and reducing waste.
If you live in the college accommodation you are automatically taking part in the inter-college competition to save energy and recycle, but all students (no matter where they live) are encouraged to get involved and take action in their own homes! visit our get involved page to find out how you can take a more active role.
