Q. Can we get microwaves to heat our lunch?

Thanks for your recent feedback card asking about us getting microwaves in the café.  Sorry for the slight delay in replying – we normally try to be more prompt!

I’m afraid this isn’t something that we are going to be able to accommodate.  I can see the appeal to students but there are several difficulties with this proposal. 

Firstly, there is a real lack of space so we would struggle to find somewhere which was both accessible and safe.

Secondly, we would require students using such a facility to keep it clean and whilst I’m sure you and many other students would do so, there would almost certainly be others who wouldn’t.

Finally, both Library and Residential & Business Services (who run the café) management do feel that a microwave is something more suited to a common room type facility rather than a café run on a commercial basis. 

I hope this helps but please get back to me if you’ve more questions or comments.

Best wishes
