During restricted entry times use swipe units located by swing doors at both ends of the building as well as the entry door of the Study Centre.
Please check your ID card is working and report any problems to the Security Centre if you are unable to access the building or the facilities in study centre on the 2nd floor during restricted entry times.
With returning numbers on the increase in the JHSC it is noticeable how many coughs and colds are currently doing the rounds.
Personal hygiene is important at all times but especially so in the current situation with so many viruses around. so please remember to catch it, bin it and kill it to help us all stay well.
Also remember: washing your hands before and after using shared keyboards in open-access areas will also help limit the spread of germs.
24-hour beverage vending machines are available in the JHB Lounge for anyone taking advantage of the study centre’s 24/7 opening hours. Please note that drinks and other refreshments are not allowed in the study centre on the 2nd floor so please use the JHB Lounge to take a break and have a drink before returning to work at any of the open-access workstations.

You have been telling us for some time about the environment issues in the JHSC. The main issue has been the temperature that has led to the room becoming very stuffy, especially overnight.
After lots of work we have finally, with the help of ESTAT, managed to resolve a long standing problem and we have been reviewing the temperature for the last couple of weeks. This is now a lot better than it was and within acceptable levels but we would like to know how you feel about the learning environment now ?
Help us by feeding back. The easiest way is to comment against this blog post but please note that comments are moderated so your message won't appear automatically but we will be able to read it.
Does it need to be cooler now that it's getting warmer outside ?
Have the increasing number of users, again especially overnight, meant that heat still builds up making it difficult to work ?
We would like to know so please help us help you by telling us.
To keep you up-to-date with what's going on, follow our blog for information on support provided by INSRV in the JHSC.[Read More]
