The Big Xmas Switch Off: from halls or home!
Play your part in tackling the climate emergency by switching things off this December before heading home for the Christmas break – cutting carbon and saving energy in your halls, student houses and across our campuses.
What to switch off?
Help drive down unnecessary energy usage by switching off non- essential equipment and lights. 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.
Save energy at home

And of course, don’t forget to ‘switch off’ yourselves, stay safe and enjoy the break.
