Student Switch Off

Student Switchoff campaign

Student Switch Off is a National Union of Students (NUS) competition that promotes environmentally-friendly behaviour among students living in halls of residence.

Flats and blocks compete to see which of them can save the most energy and recycle most effectively. The winning flats and blocks at the end of each semester get treated to a large delivery of Ben & Jerry's ice cream!

Kingston University has been running Student Switch Off since 2008 and in 2019/2020 the scheme achieved the following successes:

  • 200+ students spoken to on campus across across face to face engagement activities held at Fresher's Fayre and campus halls of residences visits;
  • 552 entries into the Climate Crisis Quiz;
  • 5 students attended Ambassador Training sessions and have since been promoting the quiz and encouraging friends to get involved in sustainability competition;
  • 25 entries in our Student Switch Off social media competitions.
