Living in halls of residence?

Student Switch Off is an energy-saving competion taking place in all UCL halls this year. The halls compete to see who can save the most energy by taking easy and effective actions. The hall that saves the most energy wins a party and great prizes like Ben and Jerry's ice cream, cinema tickets and Lush cosmetics. Easy! 

Want to win loads of great prizes?

There are loads of Student Switch Off events and competitions throughout the year which you can see on the UCL Student Switch Off Facebook page. UCL also has a page on the Student Switch Off website where you can find out more information about the programme and how to save energy.

Get involved!

Contact your halls manager for more details about getting involved in the competition. And if you have any other questions, email the Green UCL team
