This week we launched a brand new website as part of our committment to help all students better understand how the Union's budget and finances work. We get lots of feedback asking 'why can't this be cheaper', or 'why can't you spend more money on that', and it's really important for everyone to understand the constraints we operate in - doing more of one thing (or reducing the price), often means doing less of another.
That said, one of our five values is trustworthy, and that means we're passionate about charging a fair price for things. We're constantly looking at ways we can reduce costs in our trading operation (the shop, bars, events and entertainment), to give you the best value for money possible.
Over the past two years, we've been able to make a number of changes on the basis of student feedback. Some of these are:
