You Say Day is an opportunity for you to tell us what you like about NUA, what you think needs changing, or an idea for something new. Big or small, we want to hear it! 

When you submit your feedback, you write it down on a You Say Day form. The form asks for your idea or feedback and nothing else. You can let us know your course and year group (as this helps us identify themes) if you would like to, but to keep it anonymous we don't ask for your name.

Want to know some of what's happened since the first You Say Day in 2018? Have a look below...

You Said, We Did

You Said:

More entrepeneurial opportunities for students to sell work and promote themselves.

We Did:

In December 2018 we had our first student art fair which gave students the opportunity to sell work, cards, prints, gifts etc. Following the success of the event this has been a termly event.

You Said:

More vegan options in the NUA café.

We Did:

There are now additional vegan sweet and savoury options in the café, including a falafel and humous salad, brownies, carrot cake and chocolate cookies.

We also designed and printed 'vegan' labels for the café to put on vegan options so it is easier to see what options are available. 

UPDATE! The café now also have a weekly 'vegan day' when the day's hot dish and soup on the menu are vegan.

You Said:

More help for societies to advertise events.

We Did:

We've fixed Students' Union poster frames on the backs of toilet doors across campus. These are a platform for clubs and societies to promote themselves (and we'll pay for the printing too!...).

You Said:

For more sanitary products to be available in all toilets in St Andrews House.

We Did:

The SU expanded the 'Love Free Periods' campaign and added boxes with sanitary products in toilets on all floors of St Andrews House.

 

The products are there for students who may need them in our campaign against period poverty.

Working On It

You Said:

More gender neutral toilets across campus. 

After the first gender neutral toilet was successfully campaigned for in November 2018, we are continuing to campaign and ask the University for more across campus. UPDATE: The new toilet signs (one in every building) are to be installed by the end of April 2020.   

You Said:

More work by current students and graduates in St Andrews House, particularly in the corridors and stairwell. 

 

The Students' Union President has walked around the building with the Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic) to identify where artwork can go up. Artwork was installed in January 2020.

You Said:

For a multi-faith room on campus.

 

The Students' Union President is working hard to identify a space on campus to become a multi-faith room for students. We hope to have another update for students by Spring 2020.

You Said:

To replace the uncomfortable polo white chairs across campus.

 

In November the University announced that they will replace the chairs with a new (and more comfortable!) design. This campaign started in January 2020. The old chairs will being returned to the company to be recycled.  

Not This Time

You Said:

For there to be microwaves and kettles for students to use.

 

We're in talks with the Deputy Vice-Chancellor about this. A space has been proposed, and we are awaiting approval. We'll keep you updated!

You Said:

Wireless printing from laptops and phones.

 

We agree that wireless printing would be incredible, but unfortunately this suggestion is going to take some time. We've asked the University about the possibility, and will keep you updated on any progress we make. 

You Said:

Facilities to make ceramics on campus.

The University is unable to introduce these facilities such as a kiln. The SU suggests students who are interested in making ceramics research local facilities across the city. A great example is Fire and Flux on Lower Goat Lane who offer workshops and facilities. We will also look into organising taster sessions for students using facilities off campus.

 

You Said:

Better recycling across campus.

 

We are currently working with the University on better signage on bins across campus, as well as the possibility of liquid bins.  

You Said:

For games machines on campus to encourage students to take breaks.

We Did:

Over summer the SU installed a table tennis table in the SU Lounge for students to use. The SU also ensured that the games machines made a return across campus during the annual Winterfest event in January.

You Said:

Opportunities for Sports teams to compete with other Universities.

We Did:

We are now part of BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sports). This allows Sports teams and individuals to compete in national competitions. GO TEAM NUA!
