1. Intranet instability

Parts of MySaint go down everyday. It is hard to get tasks done if needed or not to wonder what may have gone wrong with your student account.

2. Information ambiguity

During matriculation, conflicting information is given. Distinctions between UG, PGT or PGR are not clear. What appear to be deadlines for everyone are actually limited to UG & PGT, which are not clarified without exhaustive queries.

3. Accommodation scarcity

I guess this is the most concerned issue. Lots of students, especially PhD who are not guaranteed halls despite concrete contributions to school ranking and necessity of proximity to departmental labs, need to scrounge for their own flat upon late announcement of hall allocation results. They are often made to reside out of town and leave lab work earlier than usual due to tight bus schedule, resulting in loss of productivity.

Disclaimer: This post bears no ill will towards the school but suggests a few major problems that can be improved.
