    Your Idea blogpost: Communicating results

    This semester, we introduced our new Your Idea scheme so you can tell us about the things that you would like to change in your Union and on campus. We wanted to let you know what we have been doing in response to your feedback:


    1. Idea: Vegan pizzas for EATS

    We are happy to announce that we will soon be offering vegan pizzas in EATS Italia.


    1. Idea: Theme Nights

    Although we offer themed Tower events on Wednesdays, Quiz nights on Tuesdays and other one off events throughout the year, we’d like to hear your suggestions for future events! Contact out Entertainments team with your specific suggestion.


    1. Idea: More Mocktails

    We will ensure that more mocktails are included on our menu at the upcoming review of our offers.


    1. Idea: Make the shop fully accessible

    We are delighted to announce that additional investment has been approved to make our shop fully accessible. Works will be completed by the end of August.


    1. Idea: Improve the website

    We’ve recently updated and refreshed the look and functionality of our website. If you have feedback on how it could be improved further, our Marketing team would love to hear from you.


    1. Idea: Lower Sanc Prices

    We review our prices on a regular basis and are consistently the lowest priced bar within a three mile radius from campus.


    1. Idea: More dairy/lactose-free products

    We have responded to your feedback and expanded our range of these products in our shop. We’ve also added more gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and halal products! Pop into the shop to check out our new and expanded ranges, and let us know if you have any specific products you’d like to see.


    1. Idea: Movie nights on campus

    After a good attendance at our first event, we’re looking at hosting our next Snug Cinema showing before the end of term. Keep an eye out on Sanctuary and Asylum social media for details. We would recommend looking at the programme offered by Middleton Hall on


    1. Idea: More water fountains in the Union building

    We will be replacing the current water fountain on the first floor and also add an additional water fountain on the second floor of Student Central.


    1. Idea: Return Strongbow Dark Fruit

    Unfortunately, due to our new agreement with Carlsberg we are unable to retail it in Sanctuary. We have replaced it with Rhubarb and Strawberry cider in Sanctuary and made sure Dark Fruit is available in our shop.


    1. Idea: Make Asylum bigger and better

    We invested £30,000 over the summer 2016 to improve the lighting and sound. Further works are planned for summer 2017. Watch this space.


    1. Idea: Clean the pipes for Ale in Sanc

    We have replaced the dispense system and beer pythons in Sanctuary in January 2017 with a brand new system. The pipes are being cleaned on a regular basis.
