RUSU £1m Capital Fund

  • Last autumn we announced a new initiative – the RUSU £1m Capital Fund.
  • This Fund is a sum of money allocated annually by the University to be invested into capital projects that will help enhance the student experience here.
  • Each RUSU Officer team will be responsible for determining priorities for spend of the £1m Capital Fund for the following academic year (i.e. the year after the one they are serving Officers).
  • In December, following consultation with the current RUSU Officers, we announced six projects to be funded as follows:
    • An extension of The Study
    • The creation of a new ‘Relaxation Zone’
    • The installation of lockers on campus
    • Investment in personal capture technology
    • The development of a RUSU app
    • A new 3G sports pitch
  • Work is underway on all of these projects:
    • More than 60 lockers are due to be installed in August in Edith Morley and The Study.
    • Preliminary concept plans have been produced for the extension to The Study, with a target completion date of Summer 2019.
    • RUSU have identified the requirements of the new app in addition to possible suppliers. The NUS are due to launch a similar project this Summer we may negate the need for a RUSU app. More information on the exciting development will be made available soon.
    • We have set up a project team to manage the delivery of Personal Capture and we have started the procurement process. Our aim is for this to be launched in autumn 2019.
    • A Relaxation Zone has been built in the Union’s upper 3sixty in conjunction with the refurbishment which will be equipped with massage chairs, bean bags and mood lighting.
    • The 3G pitch was initially under-costed at pre-feasibility stage. However we are still hopeful this project will continue and we will update you as soon as we have more information.
