Staff told us they wanted a larger email quota...

We recognise that the current quotas need to be increased and once we have migrated staff mailboxes to Exchange 2013 and it is bedded down, we will be in a position to address this appropriately. We will do this with input from staff across the University to provide us with advice about what the appropriate quota and archival settings should be.

Students told us they would like to have cameras and microphones included in the Jeffrey Smart project rooms...

The bookable Project Rooms in the new Jeffrey Smart Building at City West currently have a large screen on the wall with a PC connected by default. While it is possible to connect your own device and use its camera, some students have told us they would like a camera which could be used with the in-room PC. We will be retro-fitting cameras to these rooms above the large screen with a target end-date of the end of September. The camera also has an in-built microphone and so it can also be used for audio only conferencing with other participants outside of the Jeffrey Smart Building.

Students told us they have difficulty finding a free PC to use...

The usage of PCs on a campus seldom exceeds 80% and to help students find a free PC we have developed a mobile app called PC Finder for Apple IOS and Android devices. You can find out more about at our Go Mobile web site m.unisa.edu.au or search for UniSA in the App Store or Google Play. PC finder app tile In addition, we have status displays near most computer labs on campus which show the availability of all labs. In the Jeffrey Smart Building, you can use the Way Finding touch screens (located near the lifts) and touch the "Find a PC" text at the bottom of the screen. It will focus on the floor you are on first and you can slide the list up and down to check out PC availability on floors above and below you.
