Faculty of English
Seminar Rooms A, B, C and the Turville-Petre Room are all on the ground floor within the Faculty of English. The Faculty entrance is in the lobby by the main passenger lifts and can be reached easily from the accessible entrance. These rooms all have manually operated doors, are level access and have furniture which can be rearranged to suit the users’ needs.
Seminar Room K is on the intermediate level between the ground and first floors. Wheelchair users can use the stairlift up from the lobby by the main passenger lifts - Seminar Room K is on the right hand side. Those able to use stairs can either come down from the first floor, or up from the ground floor. Bear in mind that these are wide stairs with no contrasting nosings. The door to Seminar Room K is large and heavy - some users may require assistance.
Faculty of Law
All Law seminar rooms are located on the ground floor within the Faculty of Law. If you are using the accessible entrance, turn right and there is a level access route through the L shaped corridor containing the Faculty of English academic offices (there is a sign on the door to indicate this route). Follow the corridor around, then turn left through the double doors and go straight ahead and through the next set of double doors (these are manually operated doors). To reach the seminar rooms either turn immediately left, or go straight ahead and then turn left.
Seminar Room D has several rows of furniture which can be rearranged as needed. There is plenty of space to accommodate wheelchair users. Note - this room has a door at either end meaning it can be accessed from the Faculty of English academic offices corridor, or from the Faculty of Law itself.
The Cube (otherwise known as Seminar Room E) is on the ground floor within the Law Faculty. This room has two manually operated doors - one leads directly onto two steps up which makes it inaccessible for wheelchair users. The other door gives level access although manoeuvring space is rather tight. There are seating and desks at floor level but there is very limited manoeuvring space so most wheelchair users will not be able to use this. The rest of the seating and desk space in The Cube is on raised platforms meaning that wheelchair users will not be able to access this. There is space in front of the desks that may be used if needed.
Seminar Room F is smaller than D but has a similar arrangement of furniture that can be rearranged to suit.
Seminar Room G is a small meeting room with furniture that can be rearranged to suit.
