Want to make life at UCL better? It all starts with an idea, no matter how big or small.

Once you submit an idea, it can be discussed at either Activities Zone, Education Zone or Welfare & Community Zone. 

Ideas can be simple one line moments of inspiration - or near-fully formed policies, it's entirely up to you. For help with writing a policy proposal, please refer to our online guide or get in touch with us at [email protected]

If you want to see some examples of other people's ideas, check out this list of current Union Policy.

If you would like to propose an amendment to our governing documents, please contact us at [email protected] to discuss this.
