Student material well-being
- Add a Microwave in the Inner-city library
- A €14 minimum wage for all interUM student contracts: No more age wage discrimination.
- Free period products in ALL facilities
- Free condoms

- Create a student assembly where student matters are discussed and reported to the University Board
- Publish minutes of the University council online and create a UM council Facebook and Instagram page to promote transparency.

- Building a new student complex in Randwyck
- Promote sustainable student initiatives such as Eatly and Pop Boutique to the wider student population
