From the Suggestion Box:
It would be appreciated if there was a place for students to access boiling water for noodles or microwaves to heat up food on the weekend. Either at the library or keeping the refect seating area open on weekends, but that would be a walk and I don't really want to leave my laptop unattended.
Thank you for your feedback.
Currently on the Townsville campus the Refectory has a microwave that students can utilise. The Refectory is open 7.30-4.00pm during the semester.
I have been in contact with the Student Association in regard to your request for access to these type of facilities after hours, including weekends.
They will have some discussions in regards to your request and then get back to me with the outcome which I will forward to you.
The 24/7 Information Commons in the Library has been fitted out with a variety of vending machines, including cold drinks, hot drinks and snack food, to accommodate the needs of student after hours.
You will also find lockers in the Information Commons which students can use for a four hour period free of charge. These lockers are fitted out with power so that students can also utilise the lockers to recharge their mobile devices.
I will be in contact again once I have a response from the Student Association.
