Room numbers

Our room numbers have a common structure. The building code comes first, then the floor, then the room.

For example, room 7140 is:

  • Stoddart Building (7)
  • Floor 1 (1)
  • Room 40 (40)

Our building codes are below. Don't worry if you can't remember them. There are maps and help points on campus, and there will be people on hand to guide you during Welcome Week.
