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.

    Markeaton Street shop/cafe

    The MS shop is very rarely stocked. For students which MS is their main campus it is not ideal. Theres not water sometimes, no crisps only big packets, the chocolate missing. This is to get the shop restocked for us students in the morning as we'd like some food and snacks please! Also the hot food has always run out of sausages or bacon, for those who can't eat meal deals or just fancy a hot sandwich for brekkie end up with nothing. A consistent stock in both areas would be brilliant!

8:58am on 6 Nov 18 Thank you for raising this issue! We have had some delivery issues lately which have hopefully now been rectified (though do let us know if this issue presents itself again!). If you do ever struggle to get something, please let a member of staff know and they will be more than happy to help.
