Solent University Student Switch Off

Student Switch Off is a not-for-profit campaign encouraging student action on climate change. We run energy-saving competitions within Solent University halls of residence and achieve average reductions in electricity usage of 7%. The hall that saves the most energy wins a Ben & Jerry's party, plus there are loads of individual prizes every few weeks! All for just doing really simple things to save energy and recycle!
