The news comes after an SUggestion calling for ‘power sockets [to be] fitted in lecture theatres to allow students to charge laptops, tablets [and] phones’ reached 123 votes by students.

In an article on the SU’s website, Tommy George, Vice President for Academic Affairs, said: “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 a great win, as the majority of students attending lectures record notes on digital devices, and without sufficient power, there’s no guarantee their devices will last the full day.”

The introduction of plug sockets is the latest SUggestion to be addressed by the SU, after the Vice President for Welfare and Community, Connor Delany, responded to calls for more gender-neutral toilets on campus last week.
