The Big Xmas Switch Off: from halls or home!
Cut carbon and save money over the Christmas break by switching off this December before heading home in the student travel window.
Once again this Christmas we’re encouraging students to switch off and cut carbon in your halls, student houses and across our campuses before finishing for the Christmas break. Help drive down unnecessary energy usage, by switching off non- essential equipment and lights.
What to switch off?
See the Big Xmas Switch Off poster for energy saving tips in your halls and student homes.
- In your halls remember to switch off games consoles, turn lights off and shut your windows and doors.
- If you’re leaving rented accommodation, turn your heating down low to 14 degrees. This will save energy by avoiding unnecessary heating and ensure the heating system is protected from freezing.
