If you find the Arts building door at the top of the spiral staircase locked, please use the main entrance and then the stairs or lift. The main entrance faces towards The Square on the other side of the building. Enter the ARTS 1 door (not ARTS 2). The lifts are on the left and the stairs are just beyond them: go down one floor and through the double doors.
