    No faith room on main Seacole campus

      The current lack of arrangement for those who require a faith space is unjust, as those who wish to pray or contemplate must trek all the way to Ravensbury and Bevan house. This alone may not be a great concern, however, with the day getting dark sooner this can be very daunting and make us feel unsafe. Also, as the faith room is required multiple times throughout the day, going all the way to Ravensbury and Bevan house is disruptive to our learning. The room that was allocated has been turned into a meeting room, which does not feel fair as there are many other empty rooms that we see that could be used instead. The faith room has measures in place to ensure social distancing. We truly hope that this issue is addressed as the current arrangements are unacceptable, especially in comparison to universities such as Aston and UOB who provide a more than sufficient faith space.

    3:16pm on 17 Dec 21 This Idea is materially the same as another Idea, and according to BCUSU's bye laws, no Idea that is materially the same as another Idea may be submitted within the same academic year. Please see the Idea entitled "Providing a Permanent prayer room in City South campus!!!!" if you would like to cast your vote.

    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 the Student Voice Co-ordinator (Student Led Change) 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 16 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 16-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 16 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
