    Heavy Duty Hole Punches & Staplers in all Main Study Spaces


      Heavy Duty Hole Punches & Staplers to be available for student use in all main study areas on Whiteknights Campus, including URS and the main library building.


      To help ensure students can keep all of their important files, notes and documents organised without having to carry hole punches and staplers as well as their other items (such as textbooks, folders etc.) to university. Such a provision would help ensure that students are not carrying too much weight to university, especially for those students who are commuting and do not live close to campus.

The idea did not pass at All Student Vote, and so according to Student Voice Guidelines, this idea cannot be resubmitted for 12 months (until November 2019).
