FAQs about Lockers and Correlating Workspaces

 

Who allocates lockers? 

This is done by Academic Service with the assistance of the Reps where necessary

 

I am finishing my thesis. Am I entitled to special treatment?

Generally speaking no, but if you are having problems it is important that you contact Academic Service / the Reps to try and find a solution.

 

I am a special case. Can I get special treatment? 

Generally speaking no, but if you are having problems it is important that you contact Academic Service / the Reps to try and find a solution.

 

Can I have a workspace to myself?

There are not enough workspaces for everyone to have their own, so we have to share. Workspaces are not allocated to individuals because even those who are absent would apply 'just in case'.

In the Badia (Upper Cloister and the Library), desks are on a day-at-a-time, first -come, first-served basis.

In Villa Schifanoia (Casale, Garage and Sal Nyobe) a community workspace system is operational. Researchers who request a locker in any of these three areas, become part of a community and share the workspaces out amongst themselves.  In theory, this means there are about twice as many people as workspaces. In practice, there are almost always workspaces free.  

First years in HEC and LAW should bear in mind that most of their obligatory seminars will be in Villa Salviati.

 

What do I do when people are occupying workspaces without actually working?

All workspaces must be cleared in the evening or whenever you finish work so that others can take your place.

This is why all working areas have lockers nearby, so please use them.  

 

What do I do if I forgot to apply for a locker by the deadline?
