Dear Sarah,

We are writing in response to your Freedom Of Information request relating to Djanogly Library sinking received on 25th July 2020.

You asked-

We understand that for the past several years there have been roumers at the student and staff level that the Djanogly Library is sinking. Please confirm or deny this with adequate narrative to satiety the public interest in this matter. Please also provide internal and external reports relating to the matter, details of any work done since the completion of the library to correct any such issues and/or any planned future work, and associated costs.

There is no documentation held by the University of Nottingham to support your statement, it is no more than an urban legend.

Whilst Djanogly library is surrounded by water, the building was erected first, and the lake then constructed around it, not the other way round- as is the case for many of the other buildings on Jubilee Campus. None of these buildings are sinking.

We are unable to supply the information you are seeking as it simply does not exist, as per the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this email acts as a Refusal Notice for your request.

I trust this meets your requirements.

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled and wish to request a review of our response or to make a complaint, please see the attached information sheet and form.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any enquiries regarding this email.

Yours sincerely
