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?

    Digby Stuart Student Common Room!

      One of my wishes as President is to create an efficient space for Digby students to socialise in. The Digby College Kitchen and Diner do not suit the needs of the general student population in terms of socialising, activities, and promotion of those. Whiteland's have their bar/café space with game activities, Southland's have the reef (with ping pong tables, computers, etc), and Froebel has their College Kitchen/Computer room & The Union which is a significantly larger space than the Digby College Kitchen and designed to serve as a social space as opposed to an extension of the cafeteria for commuter students. Being the largest college, we need a space much like the other colleges possess, if not more so due to our large student population of roughly 2000 students. I have been in contact with the Estates Team for 6 months now regarding this matter and have been informed that there simply isn't space in the College to provide this service at this time - however, when there is a demand, the supply must be met. If there is no space - space needs to be made. I am hoping that by creating this petition, I can demonstrate to Estates and others involved the real importance of having a Common Room for students and that this is something that students want and need. So please upvote this idea if you would finally like a space to socialise in just like all the other Colleges have.

    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.
