Have your say on…

Which lecture theatre do you think is the best to sleep in? Is it a maths lecture room? Is it a sociology lecture room? Of those I have encountered, R0.21 made me the most sleepy. When I did doze off, I slept soundly for the remainder of the lecture; I wonder if it’s open at night.

  1. I think if you can get a seat against the wall, I’d side with MS01 or MS02 (maths building). Normally the seats aren’t particularly comfortable, but as soon as you get the wall to prop you up it’s almost as good as bed.

  2. ACCR. The dim lighting and (warped) distance from the lecturer makes you sleepy even if you honestly want to listen.

  3. ACCR definitely. Those seats are just too comfortable.

  4. Going to have to agree with ACCR – over my university career I (sadly) went to most of my lectures and even if I wanted to listen ACCR always stopped me due to its extra comfy seats, dim lighting and cosy temperatures.

  5. Totally agree with the ACCR – those seats are just so comfortable!

    When I was still at Warwick, the ACCR was always referred to as the Annoyingly Comfy Chair Room. For that reason. Also the desks are slightly too far away from the chairs, so there’s a tendancy to stop taking notes and just give in to sleep…

    Also also – don’t fall asleep in a first year probability lecture – a certain lecturer may pick you out and humiliate you in front of the entire room…

    MS.01, nice big comfy seats, just suitable if you find yourself mind-numbingly hungover and decide to retreat a row back (twere 3rd year I think, lots of free rows in the back) and sleep the rest of the lecture.

    Helps to have friends there still taking notes

    Doesn’t help if they’re taking the piss out of said hungover bloke

  11. On an unrelated note – Ramphal building lecture theatre is really annoying… it has those fold out tables on the right hand side. For those left-handers among us, I cannot begin to explain how irratating it is!!

    The only one I have fallen asleep in is the ACCR.

  13. I’m a lefty myself. That’s why I always give into sleep in the Ramphal building: too difficult to take notes.

  14. I’ve slept in many lecture theatres. I’d say one with a desk to slump onto is best. Probs L3, as you can lay across a large number of chairs.
    And R0.21 is a bastard for people with long legs.

  15. Friday mornings, 9am + R0.21 + dim lights + boring organizational business lecture + colly the night before = sleep, sleep, sleep

    ACCR for me, which was rather unfortunate given about 70% of my lectures were held there over the 4 years. Could explain a thing or two…

    Trouble with the ACCR (apart from not actually being able to see what you’re writing because of the lighting) is that if you lean forward to reach the desk the person behind you has a great view of your bum crack, but if you lean back and put your knees up on the edge and balance your folder on your thighs you end up with indents in your knees. I’ve never found it easy to take notes in there, so sleep was the obvious option.
