QMUL / Ri Masterclasses in Computer Science – directions

Directions to the Bancroft Road Teaching Rooms, Room 3.01

Venue
Bancroft Road Teaching Rooms, Bancroft Road – Room 3.01 (on the 3rd floor).
Google Maps Streetview of the front of the building (the white building in the middle of the picture).

Directions
• Come to Stepney Green tube station, walk up the stairs, exit and turn left onto Mile End Road. Continue walking and cross the road at Globe Road (be careful, no pedestrian crossing), then keep walking until you reach Bancroft Road.
• Turn left into Bancroft Road (where the yellow pillars are in this picture, the sign across the top says Faculty of Engineering) and walk down Bancroft Rd until you see a glass-doored building on the left with Bancroft Road Teaching Rooms at the top. There will be signs posted up to help you.
• There’ll be a porter who’ll let you into the building from about 9.30am (before that the building cannot be entered without a card pass), though you can wait outside if you prefer (there’s not much room in the ground floor foyer). At about 9.45am I or Ben from the Ri will come and collect you (students, not parents!). You can then take the lift or stairs to the 3rd floor and the room will be sign-posted too.
• BUSES: If you’re coming by bus the 25/205 stop at Ocean Estate is a very short walk away.

Directions from Stepney Green

  • Come to Stepney Green tube station (DISTRICT LINE), exit and turn left onto Mile End Road (If you want to pick up a snack there’s a small Sainsbury’s by the station on Globe Road, if not walk across cross Globe Road (there’s a Co-op on the other side))
  • Keep walking along Mile End Road, you will come to a geometric patterned building (the Maths building) and some metal railings. IF the gate in the railings is open please walk through it, towards the Peter Landing building in front of you but don’t go into that building, the ITL will suddenly appear on your left and that’s the one we’re using.
  • If the gate is not open then please keep walking along Mile End Road until you come to Bancroft Road, and turn left. After passing a couple of buidings you’ll see the side path next to a blue wall leading into a square. Walk into the square and you are facing the ITL.
  • There will be signs directing you once you’re near to the QMUL buildings.

Directions from Mile End (slightly longer)
