Across the 3 campus' there is one allocated room per campus. In city campus, I have been informed this allocated room is MA 102. This room is actually the men's toilets. There is a first aid room next to this which requires security to access it, not ideal for those that need to keep going back and forth each day. It's also not ideal that there is only 1 room allocated per campus as it could be in use or if like me I have half of my lectures in the MX building so in between breaks it doesn't leave me with much time to get to and from the different buildings, express, get lunch and then get back to the other building.

9:40pm on 3 Oct 18 This is an issue I certainly hadn't thought about previously, but I'm glad it has been raised. I think there is some potential here, but I would like to suggest those in need could use an SU room for the time being. I'm not sure about hygiene issues, but I'm certain the SU would be more than willing to accommodate these requirements, atleast until more rooms could be allocated.
