  1. The study space is great for postgraduates, however most of the students reserve their places and i can’t find a free PC during the day although by using the “Find a free PC at Canterbury” i see quarter of total PCs are free.

    1. In using the Postgraduate Study Hub, we encourage students to not reserve seats / PCs for others and once they have finished using the PC they must take all of their belongings. The rules of the Hub are here: Please contact the Graduate School (details in the Hub) if you experience further issues.

  2. Fantastic and much needed facility for PG students. But please could someone do something about the entrance door to the room – it continually bangs with people going in and out. Could something be done to make it close more gently so it causes less of a disturbance?

    1. Dear Siobhan

      Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, it’s great to hear the new study hub is useful for you. I have passed your feedback about the door onto the Graduate School who should be in contact soon.
