It is always SO DIFFICULT to find a plug. McGill makes it easy, having invested in tables with one plug per person on each tabletop—why can’t we? The extension plugs are messy and don’t reach to all tables, making it unfair for most who really do need battery power.
Thanks for your comment. We completely agree that the outlets currently available for students just won’t do, and that extension plugs are messy and hazardous. The good news is that we will be adding one outlet per seat on all floors of the Webster Library, and on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Vanier Library, this summer. We can’t yet tell you exactly which month the project will take place since important renovations are involved. The Webster Library building is not currently equipped to handle such a load and the electrical system will have to be upgraded before the outlets can be added. We appreciate the comments of all those who chimed in on this issue and are looking forward to the improvements almost as much as you.
