VP Education Maia Jarvis is delighted to announce that the Library will now be open 24/7 thanks to one of your Bright Ideas! Whether you're ready to hit the textbooks at the crack of dawn or more of a night owl - the Library will be open!
I have some very exciting news – we're delighted to announce that the Library will now be open 24/7 thanks to one of your Bright Ideas!
On our Bright Ideas platform, one student said that they wanted the Library to be open 24/7 and the idea received 48 upvotes. I recognised how important it was to you that the Library go back to its old opening hours so lobbied the College to implement the change; I brought the idea to the Director of Student and Academic Services, emphasising how much it would improve your educational experience. He then found the resource to extend the opening hours and has confirmed that the Library will be open 24/7 from January!
I would like to thank the student who took the time to submit this idea as well as everyone who upvoted and contacted me directly saying they wanted to see this change. I’m so thrilled that the SU and College could work together to represent your academic interests and provide all of you with the learning resources/spaces you need.
Our Bright Ideas page is still live and you can submit any idea that you think would improve student experience. I’d encourage everyone to have a look at the page and read our guide on how to put together an idea - you could be the next instigator of positive change!
