    It isn't? Ah man, they don't even make it clear in their front gate. You normally get post everyday of the week, why would they close it on weekends :facepalm2:

    So annoying.

    I don't really see the point of all the Halls in Oadby having this one tiny Post Room with 2 people (wo)manning it for everyone to converge upon in the masses, in limited time periods each day, only 5 days a week. Whose funny (read: silly) idea was that? I preferred it better when everyone went to their respective Hall's receptions as the queues were not as ridiculously long and at least those queueing were in the warm, inside the building.

    That's ridiculous, but I can't say I'm surprised the uni are cutting yet more corners.

    The one positive is that your post is always signed for, it can be a nightmare in private housing spending six hours waiting in the front room to avoid a 30+ minute walk in the cold to collect your parcel. Or have to arrange redelivery if you are subjected to Yodel!

    - Lack of PC availability during peak hours in the library
    - Food way too expensive on campus, there should be like a burger bar or something on campus every day, similar to the one outside O2 Academy on night that does chips for a quid or something
    - No local fast food shops near Oadby halls (but I don't think they can really do anything about this)

    there's other things haha, i'll post them later

    Apparent lack of teaching space for humanities students- one of the reasons we get told that we have fewer hours.

    Lack of emphasis on how helpful going to a tutor's personal hours can be. Perhaps if more emphasis was put on this then add an hour or two there so more students could use it if need be, and they wouldn't be this drive for more teaching hours.

    The astromical clock is still broken?

    Hi there.

    I was just having a nosey around this place to see if my man (or any) from the recent sabb elections had been mentioned and hadn't planned on joining, but I really feel I should address this.

    Firstly, Nightline is a non-directive listening service and a national organisation. Its whole thing is that it's not judgemental and is careful to remain neutral and not provide any advice (only giving contact details for relevant helpful services where applicable and if asked). And secondly, I know the girl who runs it quite well and while she may have seemed to you to be horrible and enjoy upsetting people, she's actually really nice and has devoted an awful lot of her life to keeping the Leicester Nightline going. I'm sorry to hear you were put off getting involved.

    because, not content with getting 9k fees next year, they want to bleed us dry so they can put a coat of paint on the union etc *rolls eyes*

    I know friends who go university in London and they can get food like sausage roll and chips or chicken and chips for £1.50

    whereas we only get a sausage roll for £1.20 and you're still left hungry afterwards

    I really want to blame the O2 academy for everything being so expensive on campus but who knows. maybe East Midlands is just generally costly anyway
