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 Facult 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 to the Informatics Teaching Laboratory (ITL)

Venue
ITL (Informatics Teaching Laboratory), off Bancroft Road

The ‘ITL’ aka the Informatics Teaching Laboratory at QMUL

Directions

  • Come to Stepney Green tube station, exit and turn left onto Mile End Road
    (If you want to pick up a snack there’s a small Sainsbury’s just behind you to your left, if not carry on walking and cross Globe Road (there’s also a Co-op there))
  • Keep walking up Mile End Road, and turn left into Bancroft Road
  • After passing a couple of buidings you’ll see the side path leading onto what looks like a building site with dark blue boards up. Walk all the way round and come to the ITL (pictured above)

A reminder please to be particularly careful when having your mid-morning snack, and to do so away from the computers (and put rubbish in the bins).

The postcode for Godward Square is E1 4FZ but for Bancroft Road it’s probably E1 4DQ (note that Google Maps won’t necessarily show the building works and how that affects the entrance to the building). If you use the What3Words system the three words are as follows
