Are you keen to be green?

19 October 2015

Student Switch Off is an energy-saving and recycling campaign from the National Union of Students (NUS) to promote energy-efficient and sustainable living within halls of residences throughout universities across the UK.

The NUS is running huge competitions across the UK, giving out prizes to the best halls of residences within each collective for their green efforts.

At the University of Westminster, the hall that saves the most energy and recycles the best will win a huge Ben & Jerry's giveaway!

Students’ Union Vice-president Otis Kirby-Dunkley has decided to reach out through rap and created a #KeenToBeGreen campaign for all those living in halls. 

Get involved

Get some free Ben & Jerry's ice cream when their van will be visiting the Harrow Campus on Wednesday 28 October, 2.30–5pm. All students from all campuses are welcome.

Two Student Switch Off Ambassador training sessions will also be taking place at 12.30–1.15pm and 1.15-2pm in E4.04 at the Harrow Campus. Register to attend the session.
