Non-Queen’s researchers

We have traditionally had a much higher charge for non-Queen's researchers for the simple fact that Queen's University provides a substantial subsidy to support the station. Last year (2016) we tried lower facility rates for non-Queen's users to reward the loyalty of long-term users and encourage new users. While we do have financial challenges at QUBS we will continue this policy in 2017.
