What has become of the hub? I never notice it until exam time - it'd be a useful place to have right beside the library

Everyone knows the uni would rather spend money on fancy new med buildings than work with what they've got

In fairness it looks like the uni has a few other worries at the moment without having to think of the hub...

I have just finished my first year and i remember when i came to uni last september thinking "what the hell is that?" when i saw the hub. I think its ridiculous that a building so central on campus can be allowed to fall into the state it is now. It lowers the tone of the surrounding area and spoils the aesthetics of what i think is one of the most architecturaly beautiful universities in the uk.
