     When moving through the learning spaces,
      please be considerate and not disturb classes
      that are being taught.
     Develop an ‘open plan voice’. You don’t have
      to whisper, but avoid loud conversations and
      shouting.
     During class your mobile phone must be
      switched off. Whilst in the building at all
      other times try to answer your phone quickly
      and leave your mobile on silent/vibration.
      The noise of ringing phones can be disturbing
      for those in the immediate vicinity.
     To recharge your devices there are power
      sockets located in the desks in the enclosed
      spaces. Please be mindful that you don’t
      create a potential tripping hazard.
     If you like to listen to music or watch video
      content online, use headphones.
     Ensure the learning space is left tidy, ready
      for the next class. Please dispose of your

      tripping hazard.
     Students must use the designated social
      areas when eating on campus. Please
      dispose of your rubbish using the bins
      provided.
