Petition Updates

  • Update from the UPSU Team

    An update from UPSU President, Helena Schofield:

    I identified the buildings that had no or few water fountains in and then had 2 meetings around November time with the head of catering services regarding this issue. This was followed up with another member of University staff. This quickly resulted in the University putting together a map of water fountains available across campus. I have chased the issue of installing more throughout the year, but this was put on hold due to Covid-19. However, the map is a step in the right direction to continue this campaign into next academic year.
