The Union of Kingston Students passed a motion to make Wednesday afternoons free of lectures to help students on union sports teams.
The motion was specifically meant to benefit students on accredited courses who often have course-based commitments during the typical times for sports matches on Wednesdays.

Union staff will now discuss timetabling with the University’s higher authorities and speak to lecturers to allow greater leniency for students who need to attend sports matches.

Currently, KU sports teams sometimes have to reschedule or concede a loss if a full team is not available for a fixture.
