Whiteboards are available in all centrally-managed rooms.

Lecturers should bring their own whiteboard pens. You can get them from your School office.

Please only use the correct non-permanent dry marker pens.

Other types of pens could mean the board is unusable until a specialist has cleaned it.

Please leave the whiteboards clean and ready for the next class.

Whiteboard erasers are in each room. These have peelable layers, which you can remove as they become clogged.

Contact the Estates and Campus Services Helpdesk for a new eraser when you use the last layer.
