Finding My Office
My Office: My office is K4U.10. King's Bldg, 4th floor Upper Level. Room 10. Come through the main KCL building entrance on the Strand. Keep coming (more or less) straight forward past the Great Hall (there is a formal entrance hall from the outside opposite). Take the lift just past this to 4. (Do not take any of the lifts before this!). When you come out of the lift you will see (half a floor up- upper -U) an office, mine is right next to that. Go along to the stairs that take you half a floor up and return back towards the lift.
Tube stations: Temple, Embankment, Charing Cross
