Bright Ideas.

Welcome to Bright Ideas! This is the place where you can submit any idea (and yes, we mean anything) that you think would improve life at Royal Holloway. Just submit the idea, wait for the votes to come in, and we’ll take it from there.

Whether it’s microwaves in Tommy’s Lounge, or STI testing on campus, every idea you send in matters to us.

You can find everything you need to know on our about page, and you can browse and vote on ideas just by scrolling down. Make sure to check out how we’re doing on previously submitted ideas, and if you’ve got any questions, drop us an email.

*Please note, the Bright Ideas platform is currently under review as a result of the Democracy Review outcome. Due to this, no new submissions are currently being accepted.

Moderation Policy

Royal Holloway Students' Union values free speech and recognises that debate and lively discussion are important parts of any democratic organisation. With this in mind, we aim to moderate discussion on this platform only where absolutely necessary. Posts warranting moderation include those which we consider to breach our Equality and Diversity Policy, our Freedom of Speech Policy, our Code of Practice, or our overall aim to create a democratic environment free from abuse, intimidation or harassment. If you are concerned about any posts on this site, please email
