This week, the Library was able to extend the overnight study space to include all of LG1. The plan is to try this out for the study and exam weeks to reduce the pressure on the existing 24-hour LC space. We are able to do so through a lot of work and planning by Library staff, and with the help of University administration and support from FMO.
Sadly, some students abused this change, and they made a big mess in one of the Media Viewing rooms.
The Library expects adult behaviour from our students. We do not have the budget or desire to provide a number of staff to act as some kind of enforcement officers. If this kind of mess becomes the norm, we will probably not bother opening this area overnight in the future.
It is up to all of you – treat this space appropriately, and be considerate of your fellow students who are disgusted when they arrive there to study after you.
