Overview

Welcome to the University of York Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and a Ben & Jerry’s delivery for your college, all for doing easy things to save energy and protect the environment.

Ben & Jerry’s for my college?
Yep! All the colleges at York compete to save energy and recycle and at the end of the year the hall that saved the most energy and recycled the best gets a free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giveaway!

Interesting, how can I win stuff?
To help your college win just save energy and recycle 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!) and NUS extra cards. These are given out to students who get involved in our photo competitions that run every 2-3 weeks.
