An addition to the PC availability map which shows whether the building is actually open, and if the access is restricted to certain schools/departments would be very helpful, especially as study spaces start to get busier as term progresses. Especially with COVID, it is helpful to have more study space to spread out to.
Student Leader Feedback
Ana-Maria BilciuEducation Executive Officer,
Hi there! Thank you very much for your feedback – it is really important that our students do reach out to us and let us know what they would like us to work on! Although this idea has no reached the 50 votes threshold, I thought I would provide you with an update on the matter. Last year, I have liaised with colleagues regarding this exact topic – as a result, the University has actually created this functionality, which will hopefully come as great news! Unfortunately, I believe this may have not been communicated too heavily due to COVID-19 taking full priority, and the reduced need for students to make use of this feature. I have added two links below that will hopefully be what you were looking for: Computer Labs Availability: https://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/it/student/computer-labs/availability/ Live feed of available machines on campus: https://keyserver.lboro.ac.uk/maps Once again, thank you very much for submitting this!
