Access information on the TS Eliot Theatre:
The TS Eliot Theatre is located at the Rose Lane end of the main site. It can be accessed from Rose Lane itself or via the main entrance to the College on Merton Street (if you don’t mind a stroll). For those who are mobility-impaired it's a convoluted route via the gardens - be warned! The gate to the gardens is not always open, and so it is best to check with the Porters on arrival.
Once inside the lobby area, there is an informal seating area and an occasional servery located behind large sliding doors.
To reach the lecture theatre itself, there are entrances to the right- and left-hand side. Once inside, there is tiered seating with steps leading up either side of the seats. Wheelchair users can sit at either the front or the rear, as there is a lift located to the left-hand side of the main lobby, adjacent to the stairs.
There is also level entry directly into the theatre from a parking space at the end of Rose Lane.
