Vote and submit ideas!

The Ideas System is simple way for students to submit ideas and vote on ideas from other students. If it's something simple, we will look into it straight away and see if it can be acheived. If it needs more resource and student support, it needs 20 positive votes to go to Student Council. Here it can be voted on as policy and change can be campaigned for! Click here for more information and previous ideas.

To rate an idea that has already been submitted, simply select thumbs up or thumbs down to indicate whether you like the idea or not. That's how simple our system is! You can also add comments to ideas and start a discussion with your fellow students.

If you have any queries regarding the ideas system, please email

Please note: Once an idea is submitted, it has 2 weeks to reach the 20 positive votes needed. Ideas will automatically go down after 6 months.

    Dairy Free options at no extra charge

      It has come to my attention that some outlets across campus (including the medical school cafe) have begun charging extra for using soy/oat/almond milk. This is unacceptable when there are many people following a vegan diet or reduced dairy and those that are lactose intolerant. There should clearly be no extra charge for this service and I believe this should be implemented across all university food and drink outlets.

    1:50pm on 24 Jan 20 Fully support this, with the price of plant based milks now lower than ever it makes no sense that campus outlets would start charging extra. The environmental and ethical costs of the diary industry are self-evident, and the university should be supporting those looking to reduce their intake.
