Your Ideas


All good ideas start with a conversation 

This is your platform to enable you to create real change in your university. We know that there are some great things about Anglia Ruskin that you probably want to see more of, but also some areas that need improving or changing. This is your platform to do this.


So, how does it work?

1. First of all, submit your idea 

2. Get your mates to give your idea at least 25 likes within 2 weeks

3. Once you hit this, your idea is turned into a Big Idea and taken to your Executive Officer Team to take forward with you.


As long as your idea is something the Students’ Union is able to work with (we can’t help you get free McDonalds every Monday, for example), and depending on its complexity (or controversy, we do like a bit controversy…) it is then taken to one of the following groups:

  • Executive Committee
  • The Ideas Forum
  • A Student Members meeting 

Providing it is not something that has already been done before, negatively affects other students or staff, or is simply just too outrageous, then we will get in touch with you to figure out what our next steps will be together

We will then put the idea into action and regularly monitor its progress and keep everyone updated as regularly as we can


It might be that your idea should become a Students’ Union policy. If a policy is passed at Student Council or an All Student Meeting we are mandated to work by it. If this is the case, don’t worry, we will help you put that together.

So, what are you waiting for? Get submitting ideas and get liking any others that you think are important!

    New Accessible Toilet Signs

      To help reduce the stigma of invisible illnesses and disabilities and working with Facilities to implement new signage on disabled toilets on campus. Adopting signage that is becoming more common practice by replacing the name 'Disabled Toilet' with 'Accessible Toilet'. Ideally wording around 'every disability is not visible' and this will reduce the stigma of invisible illnesses. Let's become more inclusive than ever and make this idea a reality!

    11:21am on 13 Dec 17 I would like to add that having the disabled toilet by LAB026 only accessible with a RADAR key is something of a pain. Brought my husband who is wheelchair bound to the open day and he didn't think he'd need to bother with his RADAR key - so it was more than a bit of a pain having to run round the campus looking for an accessible toilet he could use.
