Do you have an idea or proposal on how RSU could better support students?

RSU is run for the students, by the students.

As a student at Roehampton, you have the chance to shape RSU policy. All you have to do is submit your idea below, outling a particular issue and the change you want to see. 

Once submitted, you have two weeks to get 1% of the student population to vote. Over 50% of votes must be in favour of the idea. Once this threshold is reached, SU Council will review the idea and vote on it to become RSU Council policy. If the threshold is not reached, our RSU Officer team can still decide to take the idea to RSU Council. 

You can also comment on active ideas - inputting your ideas, suggestions, and experiences which can shape our policies. These policies then shape the work that the RSU Officers do and defines the RSU's stance on issues affecting Roehampton students.

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

Deadline to submit an Idea (to be discussed for the next meeting of SU Council):

31 Mar 2023 17:00

    Bring back Karaoke Thursdays

      Wednesday nights have always been a night for society's and friends to head out into London and explore the city especial sports teams with matches on wednesday. When karaoke was on Thursday we all went with the soul intension of enjoying the event start to finish, but with it being moved to the Wednesday we are unable to enjoy the event to the fullest, for society's it has become a "pre's" for there main event of the night going out into London to a club. So please move it make to a Thursday so we all can enjoy the wonderful event of karaoke to the fullest start to finish

    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.
