We're working on it!


As you hopefully remember, last term you voted on a whole host of ‘Your Ideas’ (all submitted by students like you!). Well, since then, we’ve been busy working away on the things that you’ve asked us to and thought it was about time we gave you an update on our progress. Read on for more…



Guild Development Zone

Idea:

Bringing everyone to the Guild’s yard with milkshakes and smoothies in Joe’s Bar

Daisy’s Update:

Good news! Everyone in our Venues Team loved this idea – we’ve ordered ourselves some blenders and milkshakes & smoothies will be coming your way in Term 3. Yard ready and waiting.


Idea:

Bring an inexpensive and student-budget suitable convience store to campus. Spar and Costcutter are too expensive!

Daisy’s Update:

We have a contract with Spar that runs until 2019, so this isn’t something we can fix immediately! However, in the meantime, we’re going to work with Spar to offer more student deals and lobby the University to include affordable options as part of the “Green Heart” development in the centre of campus. (Over where the library is now!)


Idea:

Send more delegates to NUS LGBT+ Conference

Daisy’s Update:

The NUS Conferences 2016/17 budget is currently being reviewed, with this Idea being referred too.


Idea:

Send Delegates to NUS Trans Conference

Daisy’s Update:

The NUS Conferences 2016/17 budget is currently being reviewed, with this Idea being referred too.


Welfare and Community Zone

Idea:

More Water Fountains on campus!

Roberto’s Update:

I’ve contacted the University and arranged a meeting with the member of staff who can help us with this. More updates after the meeting!


Sports & Activities Zone

Idea:

More Live Music at the Guild!

Ben’s Update:

We’ve had a really good response from our student musical groups on this Idea and we’re looking into ways in which we can make the Guild work better for regular live music nights. We’ll be working with the Venues and Tech teams to look into the current costs associated with putting on gigs at the Guild and come up with ways to be more accessible to Student Groups!


NUS National Conference Motions:

Idea:

First Class Degrees Should Not Rely on Additional Fees

Jack’s Update:

This motion has now been submitted to NUS National Confernece. It’ll be debated and voted on at Conference in April. I’ll update everyone then!

Idea:

NUS should officially commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day

Jack’s Update:

This Idea has also been submitted to National Conference. Further updates after April!


Remember, Your Ideas is always open for your suggestions – if you’ve got something you’d like to change, then head over here to let us know about it. After all, everything starts with an idea!
