No Signposts at Vic

No Signposts at Vic

Dear Ed,

The conclusion of a mildly frustrating first day of lectures is the only possible time to record one's astonishment at the lack of signposting at Victoria. Established students are aware of where things are; enrolment information gives the location of buildings on several pamphlets.

But detail is not given. The annoyance of entering Rankine Brown by a door from which there's no access to the library, or Easterfield by one which doesn't lead to the lift, pales into insignificance against the lack of signs pointing to toilets. During the day I trailed through four buildings asking directions before I finally found a women's loo beyond a "No Exit" sign, down stairs and behind a blank door in Rankine Brown Even the 'Student Information Booth" in the Lecture Block Foyer was no help in spite of being actually very near a toilet.

New students and casual visitors should not have to put up with indignities like this. Other universities can signpost their facilities, why not here?
