Suggestion: bathroom congestion

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Ive noticed the ladies bathrooms are generally overcrowded with limited toilet cubicles and the standard of cleanliness is quite low.

Suggestion: sound in study rooms

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hello, Some of the study rooms on level 6 have really bad acoustics. Are you able to make the rooms more sound proof from the others?

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hi, Every start of semester there’s an influx of new students entering the campus and a number of them use the silent rooms.

Suggestion: Level 6 silent room

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… There’s a light in the sixth floor silent room making a loud electrical buzzing noise. Perhaps there could be regular checks of these rooms in the mornings to avoid this? I find it impossible to use these rooms when there’s such a penetrating noise! (Especially when I’ve forgotten my headphones) […]

Suggestion: water fountain

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… I think the water taps that allows people to refill their water bottles need fixing, especially the one on Level 2.
