Student Switch Off: Hugh Stewart are 2017-18 champions!

June 5th, 2018

Students living in Hugh Stewart have won the 2017-18 Student Switch Off energy-saving and recycling competition after reducing their energy use by 10.9%.

Student Switch Off is an energy saving and recycling competition run by the National Union of Students (NUS). The competition challenges students living in halls of residences to take positive action on climate change, and encourages friendly competition between the halls to see who can save the most energy and recycle the most over the year.

Collectively the small energy-saving and recycling actions that our students have achieved this year have added up. Together, University of Nottingham residents have reduced carbon emissions by 34 tonnes, which is equivalent to making 2.7 million cups of tea!

The amazing results are thanks to the continued collective effort of students living within the halls of residence, and in particular to the Student Switch Off Ambassadors – volunteers who have spent the year encouraging their neighbours to switch off and recycle more.

To find out how all the halls at the University of Nottingham did in the competition this year, view the full leaderboard on the Student Switch Off website.
