The air-conditioning is set at a level by building maintenance. It is not controlled by Victoria Square staff. The space can become very warm or draughty depending on where you are sitting.
There is an after-hours air conditioning button on each of level provided by the University.

Can I bring Children on to University Premises?
Parents/carers may request approval to bring their children to work, classes or study areas where there are sudden and/or unexpected difficulties with childcare arrangements. Approval should be obtained from a supervisor/lecturer for the child to attend work/classes/study areas. The University expects that parents will not routinely bring children to work, classes or study areas as an alternative to organised childcare. Refer to the WHS children on university premises page for more information. Children should be supervised at all times.
