Computer Rooms are silent areas

Due to the increasing number of compaints about the levels of noise in the computer rooms, they have now been designated silent areas.

If you need to talk and work you can use the social learning space, borrow a laptop from us  or book a group discussion room.

    I’m wondering if the air conditioner can be reduced in the computer room. It is really cold. We can always open the windows if it’s hot.

    The computer rooms are freezing cold.

    During the day if there is a few people around, it gets warm so the air con is good, but in the afternoon and evening it sjust freezing cold. Is there any way it can be set to be reduced after 5/6pm. Additionally running the air con when it not need, not very ‘green’ 🙂

    Dear Maria,

    Thank you for your comment.

    The heating/air conditioning in the computer rooms is not controlled by the library and the temperature within the rooms is affected by the external temperature on any given day.

    We can put in a request to Estates to have the temperature settings on the air conditioning adjusted, however it may take several days for this to take effect.

    The air con just came on full blast in the computer rooms and I am wearing extra layers – a request to estates would be amazing.

    Also, is there any way that an e-mail to the entire student body could be sent about the noise level in the computer rooms. I’m not sure everyone would read the library site so may not know that it should be silent study.
