Thanks to the efforts of staff and students we have been able to reduce the demand upon our power supply. We have been successful in keeping the power surges, particularly at break times under control.
Next week we will be operating a full timetable including Core Studies. Rooms 61 and 62 may be a little cooler than the rest of this block but we believe they will be usable. Bring something warm to wear just in case.
Have a good weekend.
