Building accessibility

The building is partially accessible.
The first obstacle is represented by five steps at the entrance. The building is on two floors that are reached by elevator (ask for the key in the porter’s lodge).
Some of the lecturers’ offices on the first floor are not accessible because they can only be reached by a spiral staircase. Other buildings are not accessible because the doors are not always wide enough for wheelchairs.    
The study room on the mezzanine floor (between the first and second floors) can only be reached via stairs.


There are no accessible toilets.
