A Note on Building Accessibility

The main departmental office is located in Room 138, on the first floor of the Physics and Astronomy Building in the east wing.

Wheelchair Ramps & Access

The Physics and Astronomy Building now has two wheelchair-accessible ramps:

West Ramp: The older existing ramp is located on the west side of the building at the north end near the bus-stops at The Natural Science Building. This ramp leads to the ground floor from which both an accessible washroom and the new north wing elevator can be reached.

North Ramp: The new ramp is located on the north side of the building at the new entrance. This is across from the Natural Science Building (not to be confused with the same name that is chiseled in stone on the south side of our building). This north entrance ramp leads to the first floor, where washrooms are located immediately inside the building.

Note that wheelchairs can also access the building via the tunnel from The Natural Science Building (with further access to the Biology and Geology, as well as Chemistry buildings).

Building Elevators

There two elevators in the building. The new elevator is in the north wing, not far from the north entrance. This elevator services the ground, first, and second floors. You must take the south elevator to get to the third floor.

Building Washrooms

All washrooms in the renovated building are wheelchair accessible. The main washrooms are in the north wing on each floor. In addition, there are washrooms at the main south entrance on the first floor, and there are smaller washrooms on the third floor (which exists only as a south wing).
