Submit a Question for a Student Officer

Submit a Question for a Student Officer

Just email at least five working days before the next Council meeting, with:

  • Which of the Student Officers your question is directed to
  • Your question
  • Your name and student number
  • The name and student number of another Queen’s student who supports your question
  • Whether or not you wish to remain anonymous

The Student Officer must answer your question. If they aren't able to attend the Council Meeting, or are unable to reply, they must provide a written response within five working days following the meeting.

Anyone who submits a question may also ask another question directly after their initial question is answered at a Council Meeting. This is known as a ‘supplementary question’ and doesn’t need to be submitted beforehand. This question can be used to make sure you clarify the answer to the first question or it can be used to ask a question on a completely different topic.

If you don’t want to be identified you can ask an anonymous question. If Council deems an anonymous question to be inappropriate though it can excuse a Student Officer from answering the question. This stops the anonymous question process from being abused.
