The lecture theatre is located on a mezzanine off the first floor and therefore only reached via steps. If you require level access to the lecture theatre, you can only reach the rear and the journey there cannot be done independently.
You will need to be escorted and liaise with building staff, as the doors only open from the inside. Take the main lift to the second floor, and exit using the fire doors straight in front of you. Go across the outside walkway and through the second set of fire doors. Both of these doors have a slight lip (soon to be ramped).
Once inside the lecture theatre, the only portion which is accessible is the space right at the top- it is a landing stage/platform. The balustrade here may mean a restricted view. If you are comfortable with stairs, you will be able to access the rest of the lecture theatre, otherwise the front of the theatre cannot be reached.
The stairs to the other seating have contrasting nosings but no handrail. There is a portable hearing loop available, please see the ‘Hearing Support System’ section for more information.
