How can we Jolt the Colleges with new ideas?!

Alcohol - Free Flats

Whether someone don't drink due to personal, health or religious reasons, it can often be a really uncomfortable and isolating to start university life in a situation where the majority of social events are centred around alcohol. From experience, this can be especially tough during Freshers Week - and often means that people who don't drink find it much harder to settle in.

I'd love for there to be a couple of designated alcohol-free flats in each college; and especially so if these flats were assigned similar Freshers Reps. It would make it much easier for new students to find people who enjoy the same social activities as them, which would hugely improve how easy they found it to settle in.

It would be easy and cost free to implement - there could just be a box on the accommodation application form which you could select to indicate a preference for an alcohol-free flat - but the impact would be huge.
