 Maybe you'd like more water fountains on campus? or less? Maybe you'd like to lobby for a Skate Park on campus? If you've got an idea, then here is the place where you can discuss, vote and make the change.

    Designated smoking areas / marked zones

      Idea to allow for students who smoke to have their own space which does not conflict with those who do not smoke. Congregation outside lecture centre is a key causer to the issue, prevents clear access for those who do not smoke to enter without passing through it. Negative affect on those with asthma

    10:44am on 6 Nov 19 I believe there are marked zones that state smoking is prohibited right outside the lecture centre. However, from observation, these are not enforced, like every other non-smoking sign on campus. The security team does not appear to be sufficiently staffed to handle every "little" issue on campus. Perhaps smokers congregate here because there's shelter from the elements? If so maybe with a little enforcement and an alternative (sheltered) area for them to smoke would solve this?

    8:34pm on 12 Nov 19 I support this view because I was affected by this. I am asthmatic each time I am coming to the university; I am afraid I will walk into smoking group. Just last week I had an attack and I had to rush to the clinic for attention. I believe a smoking area, with quality enforcement, will be fine to take care of everyone's needs - smokers and non-smokers.
