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.

    Ashtrays outside OFGS

    • Facilities
    • University Sites
    There are allot of students that smoke at OFGS, myself being one of them, unfortunately there are currently no ashtrays or bins outside the campus therefore there are allot of butts on the floor. I think with the addition of one ashtray there will be less littering from cigarettes
