Help humanities PGR students get desks

Danielle Newman submitted on

Tuesday 1st August 2017


Humanities PGR Students are currently hot desking. The lack of consistency causes stress and wastes time daily. Humanities PGR students are being isolated and denied the opportunity to form close working relationships within their faculties. I'm not asking that every student get a desk (some work from home, some are away students) but surely each discipline could have a PGR office that they could assign space in? Or some way of at least signing up for desk space on a weekly basis so we know where we can work and settle in for a few days?

Hi Danielle, 

This has been made into an Action Plan for us to complete, so I am going to close this issue on You Make Change.

Thanks for your help to make change.
