    Have you seen the Robinson rabbits? If you walk along towards the Civic Centre at dusk you will see lots of our furry friends :-)

    In the snowy weather, the hill between Haymarket and the Robinson Library can get treacherous so stay next to the balustrade and use it as a handrail.

    The group study rooms are really cool and are isolated even from the keyboard click sounds from the computer clusters, making a silent place.

    The group room with the computer is the perfect place to practise a presentation. If everyone is on the same course go together for moral support+feedback!

    Please bring back the old cloth library bags! They may have been 50p more but the quality was better and I could carry more books in it because it had a square shape. The new ones aren't worth buying.

    Have you used one of our great new laptops? Borrow one from the level 2 Service Desk in Robinson Library. You can use Microsoft Office without going through RAS & save direct to your personal folder.
