    Limited food options

      I would like to suggest that the following food options be included in the food menu to allow for an inclusive student environment in the restaurants within the City South Campus (Seacole building) and City Centre campus for individuals from black and ethnic minorities backgrounds. This is due to the limited food options we have when visiting campus especially when we have long lecture days or need to study for long hours. I want to also kindly ask that they should also be made Halal or that this option be available in the meals requested below. Vegetable fried rice and chicken Rice and peas Jerk chicken Fried or grilled chicken wings Fried Plantain Spicy Chicken Tikka Toastie Thank you.

    10:55am on 17 Dec 21 This Idea has reached 16 votes and will be passed to your Executive Officer team. Because of the winter holiday, they will pick this up and vote on it in January.

    6:22pm on 18 Jan 22 I hope this idea gets the attention it needs! Agreed! Actually I would add onto this: Why isn't there a proper canteen - one (or several) organized canteens with several meals and prices for students? There should be such a place. Meal prices are over what they should for students.

    How it works


    Submit an idea... anything that could improve student experience is a valid idea.


    • You must be a BCU student, logged in using your student account
    • You can choose to submit anonymously, so your name won’t be displayed.
      BCUSU staff will still be able to see your name and email to contact you



    You will be contacted by one of the Activities and Representation Coordinators to discuss your idea and make any relevant changes to it.


    Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

    It will be live until:

    • it reaches 25 positive votes
      or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
    • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
    • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions



    If your idea reaches the 25-positive vote threshold:


    • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
    • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take
    • the comments section will be updated with the agreed upon actions

    If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 25 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
