Power sockets should be fitted in lecture theatres to allow students to charge laptops, tablets, phones, etc.
Some of the students I represent have mentioned that they like to use devices such as laptops within lectures for tasks such as note taking, but often have the issue of a flat battery after previous lectures. Some rooms, particularly smaller rooms such as seminar rooms, do have access to plug sockets under flaps within the floor or on the walls, However in lecture theatres (such as AAD0W25, AAD1W11, SLB0006, Cargill, Co-Op, Jackson, and DCB1101 to name a few) these are not present.
I would like to propose that the SU works with the University to ensure that all current (where possible) and future lecture theatres have power sockets to allow students to use their devices within their lectures in order to make notes, or potentially in the future interact with elements of the lecture (such as quizzes).

After meeting with the Estates team, the University has added power sockets into the specification as and when planned refurbishments occur in the University's Lecture theatres. This is where possible, as some lecture theatres will not allow for it, due to the nature of their structure with concrete flooring etc. Alongside this, Estates have agreed to revisit the possibility of retrofitting a single lecture theatre with power sockets over the summer, ready for next academic year.
