Cheaper replacement reg cards & keys

What's happened?

Using SU Ideas Ali Al-Ansare proposed the idea of reducing the cost of registration cards. Over 120 students voted to let us know that it's something we should work on. Thanks to Ali's proposal, the costs of replacement registration cards will be reduced from £10 to £5 in the new financial year (August 2016). This is so the budgets can be adjusted properly.

    Idea first raised

    Nov 2015

    Through SU ideas. A student, Ali An-Ansare, asked us to reduce the cost of replacing registration cards, as they are essential to university life and cost £10 to replace - arguably more than they cost to produce. He asked us to campaign the University to review the cost, and work with them investigate a further cost cap on how much a student could be charged for card replacement over a year and their overall time at Essex.
