Call on the RSU to vote through this motion to put pressure on the University to implement these changes ASAP.
In light of the tragic passing of Sarah Everard, women across the country have voiced their concerns about safety. Student's have raised the issue of poor lighting on campus and public access to the University many times. As a Student representative, I have received multiple requests over the last week for this to happen. The best way to get this done quickly, is for the RSU to support the motion. Students don't just need wellbeing support. This is a solution rather than prevention.
More lighting is needed around Frobel Lawn and forest areas, The pathway from Frobel to Digby, and other smaller areas across campus.
Students want to feel safe on campus and to be supported. This is something that is currently not happening, or is not being done efficiently as the same issues continue to come up.
Student safety should be top priority. The RSU should support this motion, and continue to liase with students and Senior Management to prioritise student safety on campus.
