"I am appalled at how little there is on campus during the summer for postgraduates/Phd students. One of the things however which makes it bearable is knowing I don't have to get food in town with the cafe upstairs (opening times are questionable?/unknown). But WHY?! close it early?! We all still..." [full details]

"Please be more vigilant about people eating in the silent study and quiet areas of the library, like you used to be. Covered drinks are fine, food is a big 'no' and this should be actively enforced - it's like the signs aren't clear enough. I'm sick of people eating out of tupperware, rustl..." [full details]

"I love the social aspect of the Walton Library but would it be possible to make one side of the Library drinks only. There is no more off putting noise than the munch and crunch of popcorn and crisps combined with the tapping of tin forks on thermos bound dinners and the endless rustling of foil wr..."

"Love the Marj! But - just one complaint - it's far too cold unfortunately... Would be great if there was a way to regulate the heating! Thanks. PS I forgot - why does the coffee machine sometimes charge 1 pound, sometimes 1.50? PPS The staff is just super nice...." [full details]

"I'm unsure as to the reasons behind the ban on drinks in the Academic Skills room. Someone taking a drink is not a distraction of any form and covered drinks are allowed in other silent study areas of the library. People ignore the rule and I'm glad they do as if people were to have to stand up and ..." [full details]

"Not trying to be picky, but I'm not impressed with no alternative facilities provided for faulty/unfixed hot water machine. I cannot be expected to work for hours and have no means to make myself refreshments - in an office environment this is against the law. I understand that café staff are..." [full details]

"I often witness people eating their lunch in the library silent study computer area, which is sometimes noisy, leaves mess and it clearly not allowed. Today there is a 'library help' individual present but they do not attempt to tell these people that they should not be eating. If they did, people m..." [full details]

"Honestly, I am very, very dissapointed in the PRICE of the library facilites, especially due to the fact that we are STUDENTS who pay £9000 a year, and you can't even spare us a few bottles of milk for a lousy cup of tea!

"The ground floor area adjacent to the Service Desk - is it an eating area or not?! I won't be working there again as it seems to be a general snacking area!.
