The University of Winchester


Welcome to the University of Winchester Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself, including £100 and free tickets to the Summer Ball, all for doing easy things to save energy and create positive change on campus.

£100 in cash and free tickets to the Summer Ball?
Yep! We have two different competitions at Winchester depending whether you are living in catered accommodation on the student village but all are competing to save energy and recycle.

Living in Queen’s Rd, Burma Rd or West Downs? The flat from each hall that saves the most energy will win the competition. Each student in the winning flats will be awarded with £100 cash, tickets to the Summer Ball and a delivery of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!

Living in St Lizzie’s, Alwyn and Beech Glade? The  hall that performs the best by saving the most energy will win £100, tickets to the Summer Ball and a delivery of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!

Interesting, how can I win stuff?
To help your flat or hall win just save energy and recycle where possible over the year by following our simple energy-saving tips. Energy meters will provide us with the data to see which flat has been using the least energy. We also give away individual prizes over the year such as Ben & Jerry’s (any flavour, including the vegan ones), and TOTUM student discount cards (powered by NUS Extra). These are given out to students who get involved in our competitions that run every 2-3 weeks on social media.
