Suggestion: level 5 wi-fi

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hi, the student wifi on Level 5, particularly in the post-grad and VC student’s room, constantly drops out. It makes studying super difficult. It would be swell if you could make it work better. The Library responds… Thanks for letting us know, we’ll put a call into Curtin’s IT department […]

Let me tell you, there are several front desk staff who are consistently rude, abrupt, and condescending. My friends and […]
