Seasonal Switch Off

Over Christmas, the University closes down for almost two weeks. During this period we ask that all staff and students take time to help reduce our energy consumption, thus lowering our carbon footprint. Download your checklists at the bottom of this page.

You can help by doing the below:

Turning off at the wall:

  • Computers
  • Monitors
  • Printers
  • Kettles
  • Microwaves
  • Toasters
  • Other electrical items

And also by:

  • Closing all windows
  • Closing curtains
  • Ensuring all lights are switched off
  • Turning down radiators – do not switch off completely in case it’s a very cold period
  • Defrosting the fridge and switching off at the mains socket
