Entrances

+ more

There are two main entrances.

From Woodstock Road the easiest entrance is via the courtyard with the fountain in, pass through the gates and head diagonally to the far corner, ahead of you will see an entrance with sliding glass doors, pass through them and over the bridge to find the reception desk.

If you approach from the other side of the building (where the disabled parking is) there is a small post with a push button and intercom that will open the automatic door (adjacent to the revolving doors).  This leads you into the same lobby space.

To reach the departments and lecture theatres (if you cannot manage stairs) you need to pass the through the large glass doors at either side of the lobby and access the lifts.  The reception staff can escort occasional visitors regular building users will have card access. The doors are not powered.

For those that can manage stairs the lecture theatres are located in the basement and can be reached by the large staircase leading off the main lobby area.

Lifts

There are two lifts servicing all floors of the building. They are located in the immediate lobby area of each wing of the L-shaped building.

From the basement the lifts are security controlled, you need an enabled card to call the lift.

On all other floors pressing the button alone will suffice.

To reach the lower levels of the lecture theatres for seating at the front or to teach there are individual platform lifts located down corridors alongside the theatre- as these lifts are ‘behind the scenes’ you will need to be escorted to them; if you are a regular user of the building you will be able to use an enabled card to use the lifts.
