Where has our library gone?

Where has our library gone?

Has anyone had that sinking feeling of walking through URS trying to find a study space and there is none? Literally none. Not a crack. Not a crevice in sight!

Let's turn this around before it's too late!

Why is this important?

By signing today we can unify as a student body to change our study space from a stressed, and over-populated environment into a relaxed and beautiful one for the most important assignments and exams of our lives!

Let's aim for more facilities; and if not discount from our tuition fees, because hey, Rome wasn't built in a day, but it was definitely built before 2026!

Reasons for signing

  • i agree !!!!!!.
  • one of the reasons (sad as it sounds) myself and my housemates came to this uni was because the library had such impressive facilities. If we'd have known we'd only be able to use them for a term of our whole degree we may have thought differently.
  • Would have considered studying at another university had a known the situation of the library

Okay so after a couple of meetings with the VC I can report that:

1) Chancellors is open Monday to Friday evening now from 6 pm to 9 pm, and hopefully weekends too at the end of term.
2) Not only this but there is now a free room finder which provides live updates to which rooms are available to study in throughout the day.
3) Halls' renovation will be finished by the end of February.
4) Eat at the Square will be open from 3 pm to 6 pm Monday to Friday as study space.
5) There are now 2 studies as well, which can be found on the new 'Study Space Map'.

Thank you all for signing the petition we have really accelerated the opening of additional study spaces on campus!!
