Thanks for filling in one of our You Said/We Did cards last week.  We always appreciate getting feedback from students but it’s of course especially nice to read the positive ones!

I’m glad you’re happy with the opening hours we provide over the Spring break.  Since 2010, our opening hours have been increasing with semester hours going up roughly by 35% in that time and vacation hours by just under 50%.  We hope to do more later this year with permanent evening opening hours at St Mary’s College Library during semester, funding dependent.  We are also now responsible for the running of the lower ground study area of the Gateway building, which is open 12 hours a day, 7 days a week and is available to all students.

Thanks again for your comments.
