Passed ideas (Arts SU Policy Book):

Passed ideas, either via the Ideas Platform (Your Ideas) or via one of our All-Student Meetings are referred to as SU Policy. This means that it is an objective we must focus on at the SU as mandated by our members (UAL students!). Ideas that are passed will be official SU policy for 3 years.

    Keep High Holborn open until 10pm

    What is the current situation? (Background)

    Arts Dance uses the Activities Studio Monday- Friday for our classes and rehearsals ending at 9 p.m. We have just been informed that the building will close at 8pm as a way for UAL to save money. I am writing to keep the building open until 10pm so we can continue our class and rehearsal schedule as normal. If the building were to close at 8pm we would require extra funding from the university to rent out a suitable studio space.

    What will be the impact of your Idea? (Why)

    Arts Dance is not the only society this change impacts. Taekwondo Society, Chinese Society, Hong Kong Society, and Life Drawing Society also use the Activities Studio. Closing the building early will negatively impact hundreds of students who rely on High Holborn for meetings. Through the Student Union, Arts Dance also has contracts with several dance teachers whom we rely on for lessons. Closing the building early would negatively impact the reputation of Arts Dance and the university for our teachers.

    What action could Arts SU take to develop your idea? (How)

    I am asking the Student Union to advocate for the 598 members of Arts Dance and other UAL Sports Clubs/ Societies who rely on High Holborn to remain open until 10pm so we can continue to use the space as scheduled.
