Blackout Friday 14 November – please join us!

King’s and KCLSU will be participating in the first UK-wide National Union of Students Blackout on Friday 14 November 2014.

As a university, King’s spends nearly £10 million on utilities per year. Small changes made by staff and students have the potential to dramatically reduce this figure, as well as reducing our carbon footprint and saving energy. For the Blackout, buildings on the Strand, Waterloo and Denmark Hill Campus  will be included in the shutdown (not including labs).


Staff and students can work across the campuses during the Blackout evening. The evening will run from 18.30 until 21.45, and then we will have a small celebration with food and drinks. To volunteer, please fill out our sign up form.

Opt-out form

If you are in a blackout area and have essential equipment that should not be shut off, you need to advise us by completing an opt-out form by Friday 7 November.
