Thanks for your comments. We would love to have more toilets in the Library as we're really aware of how frustrating it can be for users, especially during exams when we're really busy.
During the Redevelopment Project in 2011/12, we were able to add an additional cubicle to each of the female toilets as well as an additional urinal in the male bathrooms + 2 new disabled toilets (one each on levels 3 and 4 respectively).
We could only expand the capacity of the toilets that we already had because to add extra toilets in different locations would have required water and other services to be re-distributed to these new areas. Unfortunately there was insufficient budget to allow us to do this and we were also constrained by the fact that the building wasn't actually being increased in size.
So in short I'm really sorry you've been finding the limited provision frustrating but there is literally nothing we can do about it short of extending the building in size.
Thanks again for your comments.
