Requesting out of hours access to study spaces

A picture of out of hours access How to request out of hours access

Thanks in part to campaigning from the current and previous NUSU Education Officers and Academic Student Reps, the University has introduced a way in which students can request access to out of hours study spaces that are currently not open 24/7.

There are two ways in which this can be done:

  1. Contact the NUSU Education Officer (education.union@ncl.ac.uk)
  2. Contact your Course Representative so that they can bring it to their Student-Staff Committee (SSC)

Depending on where you have taken the request, either the Education Officer or Student-Staff Committee will bring your request to the University’s Learning & Teaching Spaces Sub-Committee.

If your request is approved there, then a space and project request will be created which will need to be approved by:

  • Estates
  • The Pro-Vice Chancellor for Learning & Teaching
  • Executive Board

If the request is approved by all three, then plans will be put in place to provide the out of hours access requested.
