 STATUS OF MY #SUWINS 

Exec have all been out on our ‘Exec Road show’, so far visiting Aylesbury, Milton Keynes and LSC. Our next big push for feedback is on Gender Neutral toilets.

 

We have spoken with Thameslink and Centre bus to seek alternative or cost-effective ways for students to travel. We are also negotiating to extend the number of car parking passes we can give out.

 

Negotiations haven’t started however we are confident that when they do we are in the right position to have our voice heard.

Working with the Vice Chancellors Office to establish these facts and work out the best way to communicate with students.
