A design classic

Classic red GPO telephone boxesVoted the best ever example of British Design, beating the country’s flag and Routemaster double-decker bus, the red phone box in your Library also offers free calls across campus, so if your phone battery dies just as you need to call your tutor, step up, step in and call out!

You only need dial the last four digits of their phone number to get through.  If you are unsure how to work the old-school rotary, this video shows you how (just ignore the shots of the oscilloscope and the technical explanation of how it works).

Remember you can get IT assistance 24/7 by calling 7777.
