There are several lifts throughout giving access to most areas in the building.
Main passenger lift
If entering the building through the accessible entrance, turn left into the lobby area. The passenger lift will be straight ahead. This lift gives access to all three floors of the building (but not the intermediate level between ground and first floor - see below). The lift has tactile buttons, audio information and a hearing loop. (On the second floor the lift brings you directly into the cafe seating area - there should be a clear route through here, but as the tables and chairs are freestanding you may need to ask people to move!).
**Update 28.09.2022. The wheelchair stairlift between ground floor and the mezzanine level is out of action. This means that at present there is stepped access only to the Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre, The White & Case Lecture Room, and Seminar Room K. A replacement part has been ordered, and the lift will be repaired as soon as possible.**
If you need to use the stairlift please contact the Porters' Lodge in advance as the lift is not able to carry some heavier powered chairs. It is hoped that this problem will be resolved in the near future.
The Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre and White & Case Lecture Room (Law), and Seminar Room K (English) are on an intermediate level between the ground and first floors. This intermediate level can be accessed via a stairlift located on the ground floor in the lobby area by the main passenger lift. Please note that there is no lift from the intermediate level up to the first floor - you will need to return to the ground floor and use the passenger lift.
There is a lift that links the area outside The Cube on the ground floor with the Faculty of Law administrative offices on the first floor. This is smaller than the main passenger lift although should be suitable for most wheelchair users. Larger wheelchairs may not fit inside this lift. The lift has tactile buttons, audio information and a hearing loop. This lift can be used if you need level access to the Faculty of English academic offices and graduate common room - please contact the Porters' Lodge in advance to arrange this.
Finally, there are lifts in both the Bodleian Law and English Faculty libraries . See library pages for more information.
