Facilities Support Service are also working on an exiting lecture theatre redesign project to redesign and refurbish our tiered lecture theatres. Find out more about the project.

The support team provide a wide range of support to the Central Teaching Space on campus which currently extends to approximately 250 lecture theatres and classrooms. We have a rapid-response support team linked to the Facilities Directorate Helpdesk and aim to respond to calls for assistance within ten minutes. We also offer training and assistance with the installed AV & IT equipment and can offer dedicated help to special events.

We also provide regular checks of all rooms to ensure equipment is in good working order and the room is clean and tidy and equipped with consumables. We also carry out regular health and safety checks.

We carry out regular refurbishments of the teaching spaces ensuring the AV & IT equipment is fit for purpose and meets the changing requirements of our customers.

Facility Support Services operate by the FSS Service Level Agreement which sets out the following objectives.
