Chatback Response - E206 Temperature
by Stephen Dixon - Friday, 7 December 2018, 4:13 PM

Thanks for the Chatback response informing us that E206 was cold. Maintenance have attended the room and the heating is now working.

In future, for issues relating to heating in specific rooms then please raise a helpdesk request by typing helpdesk/ in to a browser while on campus and raising a ticket. This will ensure that our maintenance staff will attend the room much quicker than if you send a Chatback.

Got any more comments? Contact the University through Chatback on the app.

Christmas lights plug adaptor
by Michelle Parkman - Friday, 7 December 2018, 12:54 PM

Please could whoever borrowed the adaptor from the Christmas lights on the tree in the Chapel bring it back!

We have a party on Sunday and we would really like the tree to look at its best for the children.

If anyone has a spare adaptor that may work could we borrow it :-)

From 7pm-8pm the Chaplaincy is hosting its first ever 'Beer and Carols' event.

We would love to see lots of people there, I'm sure free Mulled wine and mince pies may tempt you?

There will also be a snow machine :-)

Come and get in the Christmas spirit! Children welcome!

Road works MONDAY
by Alison Spencer - Friday, 7 December 2018, 12:23 PM

The new housing estate off Runway Road is still undergoing building works.  Unfortunately, they are struggling to complete the road works due to people parking there.


Road works (drainagre and tarmac) are scheduled for Monday.  There are cones and signage so please do not park in this area.


Once works are complete then the road will be adopted and parking restrictions in place, therefore, your best option is the George Park & Ride, which is only up the road and we provide "free" bus tickets for the PR3 from the Information Hub.


Thank you
