Colchester Campus room guide

Room numbering

Our Colchester Campus has a special room numbering system to try to help visitors find their way around. If you are looking for a specific room there are a few rules you should try to remember.

  • If the room number has three parts and the first is alphabetical (eg TC.1.20) then the room is in one of the outer buildings. The format is building.floor.room. The first part indicates the building - "TC" is the Teaching Centre and "LH" is the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall. The second part tells you the floor and the third the room number. For example, LH.1.12 is Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall, floor 1, room 12.
  • If the number has three parts and the first contains numbers and letters (eg 5N.7.16), then the room is in square 4 or 5. The format is entrance.floor.room. The first part tells you the square and corner (eg 4S is the south corner of square 4), which matches the labels on the entrances (eg door 4NW is next to The Store). The second part is the floor and the third part the room. For example, 5NW.6.12 is in the north-west (NW) corner of Square 5 (entrance "5NW"), floor 6, room 12.
  • If the number has two parts and the second has three digits (eg 4.722), the room is in the Maths/Social Studies/Rab Butler/Square 1 building area. The first number shows the floor and the last three digits shows the room number.
    • If the last three digits are 700-799 the room is off Square 1
    • If the last three digits are 500-599 the room is in the Square 2 area (Computer Science). For example, 5.512 is room 512, floor 5.
