    What is the current situation? (Background)

    (Note from Arts Students' Union: We have received multiple idea submissions for this, which has been combined together.)

    LCF students don’t have access to eastbank's library after 10 pm. The library prides itself for having good resources however the limitations makes it hard for students to fully utilise them.

     

    What will be the impact of your Idea? (Why)

     Although CSM is open for 24 hours, it is inconvenient to go from stratford to kings cross, that travel time could be used more efficiently if eastbank's library is open 24 hr daily, or at least for certain period of time such as coming deadlines. Some students home aren't a suitable environment for doing work, going to a cafe to work would be expensive or they might lack the required resources/facility to complete and produce quality work. Therefore having a 24hr library would be beneficial

    What action could Arts SU take to develop your idea? (How)

     ArtSU could suggest solutions or help students compromise with UAL. if 24-h-library daily is not possible. It could maybe be just 2 weeks or 3 weeks long before the hand-in. Furthermore, considering that final year students have different hand-in time, they could extend the library opening time in May for final year students. If any of that is still not possible. The last possible option is to open for longer hours instead
