Access information

The building is open for you to enter from 8am to 6pm on Monday to Friday. To gain access, please remember you need to always have your UoM student ID card with you so you can swipe in and out of the gates at Reception.

After 6pm there is a no-return policy which means you cannot enter or re-enter the building after this time. The building will remain open until 8pm for those already studying inside, and our security team will then close and clear the building at 8pm.

The standard operating hours (i.e. when the revolving doors will be open) are as above.
