Ideas Forum

Welcome to the Ideas Forum! This is a place where you can submit any idea for change about your university experience or vote and comment on existing ideas. Have a look at the ideas that are already on here to see the sort of things that students are proposing!

If you can get at least 25 other students to vote for your idea, the Union officers are then able to consider it. Don't stop at 25 though - the more votes and comments an idea gets, the more power it gives us to try to action it!

Once an Idea has reached at least 25 up-votes, it will be sent to Executive Committee and/or Student Summit which are meetings where Union staff and students discuss, vote on and potentially action your idea. So don't hold back, let us know what you want us to do! (You can even post anonymously if you prefer to)

The Ideas Forum is such a direct and effective way to get your voice heard and you can use it as many times as you like during your studies - we know that your needs and wants change year on year, so use the Ideas Forum to reflect the current issues you are facing and let us know what it is you care about.

Please Note: You will need to log in to submit a new idea, or comment on an existing idea, below.

    Make all pool tables in halls free.

    As it says in the title I want to make all pool tables found in the university halls of residence free. In my halls we can play table tennis for free and an arcade machine but not the pool table. The money paid to play doesn't even go to the halls or the university according to the lonsdale hall manager Michelle. So why should we pay?
