Campus Hubbub

Louis’, a small food kiosk next door to Milk and Honey, is the newest addition to the Kelburn campus. It will also be the last benefit of the Campus Hub Project students will see until the first trimester of 2013.

The noise and disruption of the Campus Hub Project during study leave and exams has caused frustration among students, especially to those who feel they will never get any benefit.

“The noise and drilling when I had study in the library was rather incessant. I mean, weren’t we told that drilling would only happen during weekends and outside of lecture/study periods?” asked student Cory Knights on Facebook.

“I’m not even gonna see the outcome from that noise. [I’ll] finish my degree by next year and the construction is scheduled to finish in 2013,” wrote student Papanda Jadian. “So, two years of eyesore and noise, and gaining [nothing] from it.”

Development Programme Manager Satish Dahya said that they had tried to avoid disruption to exams.
“When exams are taking place every effort is made to limit noisy work such as drilling.”

Dahya also confirmed that the project is running to schedule.
“We will have the base build complete by December 2012 and the fit-out for the retail area will follow on from this so the retail units in Easterfield and the new central building will be completed for the start of Trimester 1, 2013.”

Louis’ Kiosk, stocking both hot and convenience food, will be open Monday through Saturday, and provides cheaper and healthier alternatives to UniStop.
The entrance to the kiosk has been fitted out as a sound tunnel with motion sensors, which plays random noises, from bangs to Star Wars tunes, when activated. As it is currently out of order, Salient tried to imagine the sounds of future students enjoying a completed Campus Hub, but was interrupted by drilling.
