Customer Service - What this means to us

Customer Service

Customer Service is an inclusive term which Learning Resources and Service Excellence (LRSE) use as short hand to describe the standard and range of support available to the University community in their learning journey and academic development

Our Customer Service Standard demonstrates what customer service means to LRSE. In practical terms we will:

  • put our customers at the centre of our service
  • create a service that is responsive to our customers' needs
  • treat our customers fairly with respect and courtesy
  • provide a helpful and friendly service
  • wear name badges and will give our names to our customers
  • provide the fullest possible service at all times within the constraints of available resources
  • assist customers with special needs; for example: part-time students, parents with young children, customers with assistive status
  • publicise our services and opening hours and keep LRSE customers informed of changes
  • display our Code of Practice and regulations clearly on our website
  • provide customer care training for LRSE staff
  • train our staff to provide a quality service
  • provide a variety of Feedback options for comments, and undertake regular surveys of customer's opinion
