The Student Switch Off (SSO)
Residential Services is committed to reducing energy usage within its residences where this is possible and residents are asked to work with us to reduce their energy consumption when they live in our accommodation.
The Student Switch Off (SSO) is a not-for-profit campaign encouraging student action on climate change. They run energy saving competitions within halls of residence at 43 universities across the UK and achieve average reductions in electricity usage of 7%. Aston has been running the campaign for the last 4 years, with average savings of around 10%. This year, for the first time, we will also be running the Student Switch Off Recycling Campaign which will include flat audits and prizes to encourage recycling.
