Add New Suggestion
(Oct 24/13) As students stay to study during the extended study hours, there is no access to food
in the student centre or in other buildings. The least that should be done is
ensuring that the vending machines in Mills Learning Commons are actually
functioning. Learning commons is also generally much warmer than room temperature,
even reaching up to 86 degrees fahrenheit. As the only available study space on
campus during these late hours, it needs to be more accommodating for students as
they study, rather than distracting them with these temperatures and inaccessibility
to food/drink. Thank you.
Library response: Thanks for your message. We do apologize for the vending machines not working. Both companies have been contacted and asked to both repair the machines and to ensure they are fully stocked between now and the end of exams. We do know how important this service is to students using the Learning Commons area to study late at night.
We are in the process of replacing the air supply fan which feeds the Learning Commons. This work has been ongoing for several months, and should be completed by the time everyone returns from the mid-term recess. The project itself has taken much longer than was originally planned. Our apologies for how warm it can get there. Thanks for being patient during the last few days of this project. (Oct 24/13)
