Please get the power points fixed. Very frustrating when you have to try 8 power points before you get one that works. Also, more power points by big tables. 4 power points for 3 tables of 8 is not enough and there are tables with no power points anywhere near them.
Thank you for your feedback. Can you be more specific about the areas you feel require additional more power points?
In regards to certain power points not working, are you referring to
the power points along the southern wall on the first floor? There are
power distribution issues in this area that are exacerbated when
students connect devices that are not compatible; this trips all the
power points along that row out. Unfortunately this is a common
occurrence with the only solution being to have an electrician reset
them. We report this weekly so if you notice the power points are not
working please report it to staff at the InfoHelp desk.
As you can understand the age of the building makes it difficult to add
further infrastructure (i.e. additional power points) in certain areas.
When we create student spaces we do our best to ensure that furniture
is situated near power points.
There are also lockers in the InfoCommons that have dedicated power
and you can borrow mobile chargers for your laptop/phone at the InfoHelp
Please get back to us if you have any more suggestions.
