What do you want? / Why do you want it?

Many students work through the night due to fast approaching deadlines, having many commitments during the day (e.g. childcare, part-time work, commuting, etc), or due to working better late at night/early in the morning. By having a library open 24 hours, there is a space for these students to work when they might not have the best space or equipment to work from home. With the new library booking system, it is possible to limit a student's number of hours spent in the library. This prevents them from pulling all-nighters which are seen to be harmful to students' wellbeing.
