The Christmas Newsletter from Student Support and Wellbeing contains a variety of useful information for staff and students over the festive period, including opening times of the Student Support Hub, the Christmas Day meal in the Students’ Union and a guide to what’s going on in the City.
Following the recent successful upgrade, Banner is available once again and all affected systems which impact on you as a student should now be operating as normal.

We are already starting to receive complaints from library users.
We don’t expect total silence (except, of course, in the Silent Study room) but do expect individual or group study to be carried out quietly throughout the whole of the Library building, showing respect to other Library users and staff .
If you wish to meet socially or sit and chat whilst studying then why not visit the Foster Learning Zone where you can also enjoy a snack, a meal or a coffee whilst you meet up with friends or study with colleagues.
