AAD Building – new map and room numbers

We are introducing a new map and room numbering system to both halves of the extended AAD Building, to make it more navigable for students, staff and visitors.

To view the map of the new AAD building, please click on the image below:


Room number changes

The following indicates room numbers changes to the older part of the AAD building (West).

All existing room numbers will change to allow a standard format to be adopted across the whole building. The building is split into east and west and many old room numbers may now have new numbers assigned to them. An example room change is as follows:

  • AR2204 to AAD3W20 (this translates as AAD Building, third floor west, room 20)

The new room numbers will be completed before the start of term. Staff occupation in the new extension will begin from 19 August.

7 thoughts on “AAD Building – new map and room numbers

  1. Pingback: Use the AAD building? New room numbers are being introducing

  2. Thanks for your comments, everyone. We apologise for the initial confusion the new room numbers may cause, but we are sure that the changes will make sense once the extension opens.

    The “mezzanine” floor, which is actually at first floor height, has caused a great deal of confusion over the years, and is being relabelled to put a stop to this.

    Once all the new signage is up, and the building maps are placed across the building, it should be much easier to navigate around.

  3. I can see the theory behind the construction of the new room numbers but from a practical stance, I worry that when the students look on their timetables and see ‘AAD0W25R’, they may find it confusing (especially International and DART students). To be frank, I’m not sure how you can call that a room number, it looks more like a voucher code for some online retailer. In a society that is engaged with the Plain English campaign, I feel these room numbers are not the right way to go.

  4. I have to say that I agree with the previous comment. Especially confusing for DART and International students, let alone for the rest of us. Yes I can see the logic and you can work it out (with some guidance) but the numbers (or codes) are way too long.

    Doesn’t seem to have been any consultation with the users of this building. Is it too late to reconsider?
