Looking after our campus

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 3:51 am

As we get into the swing of a new term, it is important we all play our part in helping to maintain the quality and cleanliness of the campus, particularly focusing on our teaching spaces.

Could I please remind all staff only water should be taken into lecture rooms and the lecture theatre.  No food, hot drinks or other soft drinks are allowed in lecture rooms and we ask that you remind people of this should the situation arise.  Lecture rooms should all have signage to this effect (if signage is missing, please let us know).  This is to help maintain the cleanliness of rooms.      We had a number of incidents of hot drinks spillages in lecture rooms last term and these weren’t reported which makes it much harder to clean.   Please report any spillages straight away to or call the helpdesk for the relevant building (numbers are in the lecture rooms).  The sooner spillages are reported, the easier they are to clean.

There are recycling bins in communal areas for all waste and staff and students should be encouraged to use these.  Please do not leave any rubbish in lecture rooms.

Thank you for your help in maintaining our Southend Campus
