We’re aware that a small number of students are sleeping in the I.T. rooms near the Open Access Centre in Studland House, Lansdowne Campus and occasionally in other spaces on the Talbot Campus, at evenings and weekends.
Although security staff are available 24 hours 7 days a week, it’s not safe – or healthy – to use spaces on campus to sleep.
The spaces near the Open Access Centre in Studland House are overflow rooms and will be in high demand over the next few weeks as assignment deadlines and exams approach. Please do not use them for any other purpose so that all students have access to I.T facilities when they need them.
We understand there may be many reasons why students are considering sleeping in these spaces.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your workload or assignments, please talk to your tutors or programme administrators. It’s also important that you rest properly - at home – and you may find the events listed below helpful.
For more support our Student Wellbeing service offer drop-in sessions, workshops and one-to-one sessions with a Wellbeing Advisor. There’s also SUBU Advice who can offer advice on housing, money and academic issues as well as general support and information on personal issues.
Please let us know if you’re aware of people using space on campus to sleep, and feel free to share suggestions or feedback about the spaces provided for the Open Access Centres by completing our short feedback form.
You should continue to report all technical issues as usual via the I.T. Services Helpdesk.
