President's Blog - Study Space

I've been having a bit of a wander around campus today.

One of my current projects this week is study space. Class reps have given feedback that they would like more space for study on campus, and I've been seeing what I can do to help this.

The one thing I've discovered is that there isn't necessarily a lack of space, there is a lack of use of space. The library and Georgina Scott Sutherland Learning Centre are great, and I had a walk around there at a peak time today (at 12pm) and it was swamped.

However, I also had a walk around some other spaces that students might not know about, again at 12pm. This included labs in Sir Ian Wood Building and the Faculty of Health & Social Care, and at peak time, in the middle of study time, I found them lying completely empty.

I'm going to try and do what I can to maximise the space for students on campus, and am currently producing a map, posters and flyers outlining all of the different spaces that you can use on campus. This will hopefully be a helpful tool. I hope to have this out and distributed across the campus as soon as possible.

What are your thoughts on study space on campus?
Do you need more computers?
More groups study space?
Access to IT labs?
