Space savers 1

November 11, 2005

Your article "Lecturers who failed to fill room fined £500" (November 4) focuses on unused teaching rooms at City University. I have been carrying out space utilisation surveys in higher and further education for much of my career and while the situation at City seems extreme, it is not unusual.

I have worked for ten years with City and Islington College and, over that time, by monitoring space use each year and by adapting the amount and type of accommodation to fit the college's activities we have increased space utilisation, saved money on accommodation costs and the college now has teaching and learning rooms fit for purpose.
