Thanks for your Chatback on a pothole in the carpark by Barjon. Our onsite team are going to do something as a quick fix to at least stop it being quite so deep, and then look at getting it fixed properly and permanently.

Thanks for raising it, and watch out folks, don't fall in.

Chatback Response - W225 Recordings
by Stephen Dixon - Thursday, 21 March 2019, 1:08 PM

Thanks for the Chatback response regarding the recordings in room W225. We have contacted the installers about the issue but it would be really useful if we could get a contact in one of the lectures for which the recordings aren't working. If you raised this Chatback, or have used W225 and the recording hasn't worked, please contact so we can liaise directly and get this issue fixed.

Thanks again for bringing this to our attention and we hope to get it sorted quickly for you.

Got any more comments? Contact the University through Chatback

Come to the Library, fill out a quick feedback form about Library services and staff will give you a Crème Egg in exchange. You can find the forms next to the MFDs on the Library first and second floors and at the main desk and there's 240 Crème eggs up for grabs, so make sure you get to the Library quickly!
