    • Step free access into the room can only be gained via the University Building Upper Floors Lifts which leads directly into the lecture theatre. You will still need to overcome the level change however.
    • There are two entrances into the lecture theatre. Both have their own set of steps and ramp.
    • The steps lead to the rear of the theatre, the ramp leads to the front. To access the front of the lecture theatre from the top of these steps, you have to climb down the staggered seating. This consists of four colour contrasted medium steps with no handrails.
