Explain your idea further

If, like me, you spend 8 hours a day at Uni, then you currently spend 1/3 of your whole week here!

Credit to the cleaning department, who you will hardly ever see because they do their jobs before most of the population's alarms go off in the morning and after everyone has gone home.

However, alongside a review of cleaning schedules, with the right resource available we can all do our bit to keep the environment in which we work clean. My proposal is:

  • Install dispensers for equipment cleaning wipes in all OA suites and make them easily noticeable
  • Clean toilet facilities in all buildings AM and PM
  • Review lecture hall climate control settings and review filtration

How would your idea benefit students?

  • Reduce the spread of seasonal illness such as the flu
  • Boost student attendances
  • Reduce demand for University Surgery 

How could your idea be implemented?

Meet with Estates and Campus services to discuss requirements and carry out a review.


The idea is now looking for 15 Backers.
