I was in the silent area in the Kate Edgar building and a couple behind me kept talking. When I asked them to keep it down they got aggressive and asked me to mind my own business. As such, I think there should be more enforcement of noise levels in SILENT areas. I would suggest more posters around Kate Edgar stating that the particular area is a silent area for the purpose of individual study. Furthermore, it should state that any complaints received will mean that the people making the noise will be asked to leave and/or fines imposed. Given the fees that I have paid it is absolutely ridiculous that I have to deal with rude and inconsiderate people while studying.
    Kate Edgar Levels 3 & 4
    Hi Carrie,

I do apologise for the inconvenience and distress that this may have caused you. Completely understand your frustration and I will get in contact with the Kate Edgar staff to ensure they are more vigilant with their roving of all the levels. Staff members are required to walk through the levels making sure everyone is following the rules every 30 minutes, we do apologise if that was not the case that day.

For future reference, if you have more similar issues and a staff member does not show up often, then please email the as then we would be able to send someone immediately from Level 2.

Kind Regards,
Ahmed Bashir
