A Microwave in S Block!

Extra Information: 

Every year many students ask for a microwave. I have taken this to Departmental committee who say it can not be put into place. We are not taking no for an answer and with winter around the corner we all want warm pasta and soup for lunch!


I am the Lead Department Rep for Education and Childhood and need your help to get as many votes as possible to finally put this into action!

1:39pm on 22 Oct 18 As someone who has to commute far to uni, spending a lot of money to just get here, a microwave would be ideal so I don’t have to keep waiting until I’ve gotten home to eat.

12:51pm on 22 Oct 18 I strongly agree. I don't even eat in uni because there's nowhere I know to heat up food.

11:08am on 22 Oct 18 I strongly agree! It's far too expensive to keep buying warm lunches.
Jessica Evans
10:12am on 22 Oct 18 With S block wanting me to take out a loan every week to buy lunch a microwave would be a 10/10 idea

9:53am on 22 Oct 18 This is a great idea and I would definitely make use of a microwave in S block. It would save a lot of money from purchasing hot food.
Luke Guest
9:14am on 22 Oct 18 Education students spend long days in S block as timetabling isn't always kind to us. This would benefit so many students and stop them spending money they don't have.

Jordan Bobbett
1:05pm on 18 Oct 18 It would save so many students paying for food, and with a full time course some don’t have time to walk to D block to heat up their food! Vote vote vote
