Map wiith directions to GCE2 venues from main UCL campus entrance on Gower Street:
Red arrows: Day 1 venue (North-West Wing Room G22)
Cyan arrows: Days 2-3 venue (Portico Building, Jeremy Bentham Room)
For G22, enter the main UCL campus gates on Gower Street opposite the impressive looking redbrick Cruciform Building. As you enter, the building on the left is the North-West Wing. The main building entrance is not accessible to the public, as it requires UCL card access. To access the GCE2 venue, turn left to walk along the outside of the North-West Wing building until you reach a glass door to enter the building on your left. Enter here and turn right, following signs to room G22.
For the Jeremy Bentham Room (JBR), head straight through the main UCL camps gates to reach the bottom of the Portico (Greek column style) building stairs, turn left to enter the building at the entrance indicated, turn right to reach the dome passing the main UCL library entrance on your left, then turn left to head up the stairs to the Jeremy Bentham Room. Alternately, turn right at the bottom of the stairs to reach the JBR in the opposite direction.
When finding the venue, it’s worth being aware that there is also a Gower Place.
If you need help finding anything, there are lots of friendly security personnel dressed in blue jackets to help you.
