Physical clocks to be put up in University buildings

Extra Information: Most of us have phones and so it's easy for us to know what time it is by looking at the screen, but what if your phone's battery runs out or if you forget your phone somewhere? Getting you phone out to check the time in a meeting is also quite rude. Having a physical clock on the wall might even be comforting to some.

Actions Taken

  • This Idea opened on 4th October 2017 and closed for voting on 25th October 2017.
  • This Idea scored a 3rd which means it's not a priority for the time being. 

  • April 2021: The President has passed this onto the director of Estates and Facilities, and they will be looking into once the pandemic is no longer affecting normal operations.

10:28am on 16 Dec 17 this idea should be easy to carried out by the su, putting clocks over campuses, why is it marked not important?

12:35pm on 23 Oct 17 This would be particularly useful in the studios at Spike Island. As a Fine Art student I often create work that is very messy and so I don't feel comfortable having my phone out or wearing a watch but I still need to know the time so I'm not late for lectures, tutorials and meetings etc

6:37pm on 19 Oct 17 A clock in The Hub Glenside would be really helpful to keep track of yourself whilst ordering food, eating, chatting and chilling. It'd be a good strategy not to be caught off guard for lecturers and meetings.
