This Idea has been amended by Student Council to: Increase Microwave provision across all campuses

The queue for the microwave can get very long during lunchtimes. It would be great if there was more than one microwave - 3 would be perfect.

Actions Taken

  • This idea opened on 28 Oct 2016 and closes for voting on 18 Nov 2016.
  • Not enough students have voted on this Idea. This Idea has failed.
  • The Executive automatically passed the Idea. Student Council will have an opportunity to overturn this on 24 Nov 2016.
  • Student Council did not overturn the Idea it will now be worked on by The Executive.
  • The Executive has made representations to University Facilities and additional microwaves have now been installed at Frenchay in OneZone, Glenside in Traders and the SU and Bower Ashton in the SU. The Executive will continue to lobby for increased provision.

11:55pm on 7 Mar 18 This should be implemented asap. There's currently only one microwave in Bower Ashton it's ridiculous how long the queue during lunchtime always is

1:06pm on 17 Nov 16 I queued for half an hour the other lunchtime to heat up my lunch. That one isn't very powerful either, so 3.5 mins and your food still isn't heated thoroughly. I bring food to uni to save money as my student loan is minimum so having more microwaves would be a very good idea which I think most people would agree.

12:26am on 15 Nov 16 Gave up queueing for the microwave the other day after I realised the back end was in the corridor outside Oneonze, utterly ridiculous.

4:06pm on 2 Nov 16 Had to queue for nearly half an hour the other day to heat my lunch up in the microwave in the OneZone. Microwaves are really useful and help me stay healthy with food choices and save money - both really important as a student!!
