    Children-friendly room

      I consider that students with kids are put at disadvantage around the campus, especially when it comes to using the Library. They are not particularly welcome if they choose to bring their children with. This is a big issue especially towards the end of the semester, when the assignments are piling up and also during exam period. Therefore, parents need to invest even more money in childcare and extra hours in order to be able to study. I think that a children-friendly room where students can study, while the little ones are playing would be incredibly beneficial, and help them improve their academic performance as well.

    8:29pm on 13 Dec 19 Such a great idea! Studying as a parent can be overwhelming, especially now my daughter is at pre-school. Christmas holidays are spent trying to juggle writing in the evenings as childcare becomes unavailable. It would be an amazing facility at the university and one many people would make full use of! (Also it would be cute for the children to benefit from a social aspect)

    9:50pm on 13 Dec 19 Such a good idea! I'm in the same boat as May. My son is 4, due to go to school in September and keeping him entertained while studying and trying to cram in the evenings are a nightmare.

    10:45pm on 18 Dec 19 Fabulous Idea! My children are slightly older (11&12) but I still bring them in occasionally and just having somewhere we can go where I won't get disapproving looks whilst they play quietly on their tablets would take so much pressure off. Definitely something that should be looked into further.
