Facilities

Birt Acres is a cinematic, fixed seating tiered lecture theatre.  There is currently no level access to the front of the theatre.  There is level access to the rear of the theatre, however there are currently no designated wheelchair spaces.  Future plans aim to address this issue, in the meantime however, if wheelchair access is required please book an alternative theatre.  The lecture theatre is fitted with an induction loop that works in conjunction with the T switch on hearing aids.

In the event of an emergency evacuation, the lift cannot be operated.  If you require assistance to exit the building during an emergency evacuation, please go to the nearest refuge point, which is just outside the theatre.  Use the phone provided which goes directly to Security and wait for assistance.
