Limit noise on the Highfield campus (especially redbridge area)

Loud noise is harmful to physical and mental wellbeing. It reduces students ability to focus and learn. The music in susu shop is too loud and music in susu building could also be quieter. Frequent events in front of the susu building with loud music prevent students with sensory problems from using university facilities. They are not able to use microwave stations in susu building or acces student lettings and advice centre when loud events take place in the redbridge area. As a way of integrating students with social and sensory difficulties some means of limiting the noise should be implemented.

Thanks for your submission

I fully understand this concern, and we are making lots of steps to help accommodate people with sensory overload/issues. This includes reusable ear plugs being handed out in the wellbeing cupboard, and quiet rooms being installed in the union for union night time events. 

I am working on this with the Disabilities Officer, if you'd like to get in touch, but we won't be able to make the whole union and redbrick a quiet area unfortunately. I will speak to the shop about having their music on a lower volume. Further, Sport and Wellbeing have introduced their 'quiet hour', which is on Wednesday between 8pm-9pm and Friday 12-1pm! 

Thanks for your submission and please keep up to date with us on SUSU or Facebook to see what work we are doing in this area.
