Got an idea of how RSU could work better for students?

You're the students, and the RSU is run by you, so tell the RSU what you want us to do and campaign on. 

All you have to do is submit your idea below, once submitted you have 2 weeks to first of all get 1% of the student population to vote on it (currently 80 students). Then secondly, 50% +1 of those who voted to vote in favour of your idea. Once you reach the required number of votes, SUC will review the idea and vote for it to become Policy of the RSU. It's that simple!!!

Once Policy, the RSU will campaign, lobby and if we can, enact your idea, to try to improve student life here at Roehampton.

Watch the video to find out how the Ideas page works! 

So, what are you waiting for?

    More lighting on campus and surveillance of gates!

      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.

    After you've submitted your Idea, there will be a two-week period where students can vote on it.

    After this period, your Idea will be sorted into one of the below categories. You can click through to see other Ideas that have fallen into these categories.

    These are Ideas that have received enough votes to go to SUC. Since then, they have been passed and are now RSU policy. The RSU will campaign to implement these ideas on your behalf.

    These are Ideas that have been rejected by the Roehampton community. This is because they have either not receive enough votes in the two-week period, or more students voted against the idea than for it.

    These are Ideas that have been referred to the Trustee Board by SUC. The will be because SUC feels the Idea needs to be scrutinised further due to financial, legal or ethical risk, or if it puts the reputation of the RSU in jeopardy.

    These are Ideas that have not recieved the 1% vote of the student population within two weeks of being submitted Ideas that did not get enough votes cannot be resubmitted until the new term.
