The Student Activities centre at the University of Portsmouth Students' Union had opening hours of 9am-Midnight Munday-Sunday until a break in on the 5th December where 3 iMacs were stolen.
Since then, UPSU media has been struggling to run on the limited availability the area of 9am-5pm Minday-Friday. 3 months later, there is no change.
The SAC contains radio studios for Pure FM, studios for UPSU TV to use and editing equipment, design software for The Galleon and Pugwash Magazine.
Statement from Pure FM:
As you know, we haven't had our full timetable since 5th November 2012. This was due to a break in to the Union building, which is detailed by the Union here.
We will be broadcasting Monday-Friday 9am-5pm from Monday 14th January, but we're still working harder.
The committee are applying constant pressure onto the Union and we will be trying our best to get back to our full hours of 9am-Midnight Monday-Sunday.
If you want to show your support for the evening and weekend broadcasting, please sign the petition.
Keep listening from Monday at www.purefm.com, see us at Refreshers Fayre in the Union on Friday, and we'll keep working behind the scenes.
An update will come on Monday from the Union about the hours, which we will share with you as soon as we can.
Pure FM Committee
We implore the University of Portsmouth Students' Union to do its utmost to return SAC access for students to the normal hours of 9am-midnight, Monday-Sunday to allow UPSU Media to operate fully.
