Suggestion: university grounds

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hi, I don’t know where else to post this so I will do it here. The amount of rubbish in the car parks and on the outskirts of campus is a joke. I understand that it isn’t strictly the universities fault – as the person who drops the rubbish is […]

Suggestion: silent rooms

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… First off, the concept of silent rooms is simply amazing. However, I’ve noticed that silence is a commodity that is not in constant supply in these rooms.

Suggestion: kitchen facilities

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… I was just at Reid Library at UWA and noticed they had 3 microwaves, hot and cold water filtered water dispenser over a basin, and a supply of paper towels, in a corner of the ground floor.

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?

Suggestion: silent area

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Suggestion 1: Studying in the silent rooms is becoming impossible. In addition to those who come there to eat and chat, the most irritating ones are those who come there with their high pitched noise of sniffles. It is so inconveniencing to others. My Suggestion is students should be reminded […]
