Doors

 The doors separating sections of corridor are wooden double doors with small vision panels.  These are usually held open during building opening hours.  Most of the doors to seminar rooms, lecture rooms, and the door to the common room have entrances which are one and a half door widths wide, with no vision panels.  All doors apart from the entrance door and the door for the platform lift are manual.

Reading Rooms

+ more

 The student resource room is located between lecture rooms 7 and 8 on the first floor.  The door is on coded access, so you might need to ask for help getting in.  You can obtain the code from the weekly class office.  The room has heavy chairs and a coffee table, as well as accessible computers and some information leaflets.  The desks for the computers are high enough to fit most wheelchairs under, and the office chairs provided for them are easily moved.

Lecture Theatres

All of the lecture theatres on the first floor follow the same basic pattern.  They are all different sizes, but have moveable furniture.   The majority of desks might be a bit low to fit wheelchairs under comfortably, but there are higher ones available in seminar rooms 1 and 2.

The exam hall is in the centre of the ground floor.   Exit the foyer via the door on the left, then take your second left and first right to get there.
