Provide free sanitary products in all campus bathrooms.

Students and Staff have noticed that the machines to buy products are no longer instock/functional on the WSA Campus and a selection of products in all bathrooms on site would be very beneficial to those who need it, for staff and students. I'm not sure about the situation on the other campuses but this should be something sort after for all.

Not only is period poverty a real issue, but having a slection of products in the bathrooms is just as important as a first aid kit when needed.

If any changes were to be made it should be inclusive of the transmasc and disabled communities too, hence in all bathrooms not just the female ones.

Hi Maeve,

As a final update, the SUSU Shop have ordered MoonCups to be stocked in the shop at a very discounted rate. The availability of these period products will be promoted via various channels, including through the relevant societies. SUSU are also going to explore providing some of these at no cost to those students who need them the most. 

I hope this is positive to hear and if you have any further questions then please contact me at 

Kind regards,

Hi Maeve,

Just to update you- we have been exploring getting in reusable period products for the The SUSU Shop and to also distribute them to those who need them the most. Not only are these products environmentally sustainable, but in the long run they will cost those who use them less- as they won't need to buy new period products every month. 

Once we have acquired these and I have a final update on plans, I will let you know. 

Many thanks,

Hi Maeve, 

I have spoken to the University's Estates Team about the machines at WSA. They have let me know that there was a mix up with the supplier and invoicing, but that it is being sorted now and so the vending machines should be restocked very soon. 

I hope this is helpful and positive to hear. 

I am going to be looking into the issue of period poverty separately and will update you once this progresses. 

Kind regards,
