    Post Rooms open longer hours

    • Community Idea
    • University Idea
    Currently the post rooms on campus are open for only a short number of hours each day, and then not at the weekends. I propose the post rooms be open for longer hours, say 9am - 7pm, and on the weekends too. Currently Kingswood post room is open 8am-9pm, 7 days a week, however this is not reflected in the hours of the other post rooms. Heighfield is open 9am-12:30pm and 1:30pm - 5pm Monday to Friday, the Hub is open 10am - 1pm and 2pm - 5pm Monday to Friday, however Founders is currently the worst off, only opening between 11am - 3pm Monday to Friday. These opening hours are unsuitable as students have lectures throughout the day and are not able to collect their parcels between these hours. It makes no sense to me that the post rooms would open after the first lecture of the day and shut before the last lecture of the day too! I believe that the post rooms should also be open, at the very least, on Saturdays too. Post can be delivered on Saturdays, so I think we ought to be able to collect it then too. This would also save the huge backlog the post rooms suffer with on Mondays. As Kingswood post room is open every day of the week, and for longer hours, I believe this should be reflected in the hours of the other post rooms too.
