It's very expensive to keep paying for hit drinks on campus when we can bring our own if we had access to some form of a kettle.


Free hot water for own tea/coffee

This Idea for Change as passed to the Student Change team for action: 

  • 12 Feb 2019: A kettle has been bought for the SU space to go alongside the microwaves at reception. The Create Change team are looking into facilitating hot water or kettle's in other areas around the University as well and will update you by 22 Feb 2019. 
  • 18 April 2019: There is a kettle in place in the Telford SU space as well as the City Campus SU space, and you can access hot water via vending machines free of charge.

This Idea is a Win and thus complete.

10:05am on 9 Apr 19 Is there any update?? I've just had to pay 30p for hot water for porridge in MX. I could understand if I was then going to use their milk and sugar, but for meals is daft. Particularly when you don't have time before or during lectures to walk over to MC or the Chaplaincy.

10:59pm on 28 Nov 18 If this is for city campus, I think you can get free hot water from the black vending machine outside of the Harrison Learning Centre. Option "42" I think maybe?
