Welcome back to all of our returning students who have come back at the weekend – we hope you missed us as much as we missed you!
What you might have missed during the summer while you’ve been away is some news about our IT facilities in the Library and – best of all – an extension to our term and vacation time opening hours.
- Yes, that’s right – from the start of this term, the Library will be increasing its opening hours during term time, meaning we will now be closing at 2am rather midnight. We will also be extending our opening hours during the next Easter vacation (it’s not that far away!) so that we’ll be open Monday-Friday until 8pm instead of closing at 5.30pm as before. The New Year 24-7 opening period will also be starting earlier next year.
- We’ve added 43 new PCs to the study area on Level 4, meaning we now have around 250 public workstations throughout the building.
- Engineers rejoice! All Library PC’s (except the Short Stay workstations) are now Auto-CAD software enabled thanks to sterling upgrade work by IT Services during the summer.
- On a bit of a downside, the PC Clinic have changed their opening hours. They will now be open weekdays from 10am to 6pm, but unfortunately will NOT be open at all at weekends. Library evening & weekend staff will provide as much help as they can, but in the first instance you should contact the IT Services Service Desk for any out-of-hours IT queries.
Enjoy your term!
