Access and Late Working
The Architecture building is open daily and each evening, Monday to Friday, from 8.00 until 22.00 hrs.
The building is locked outwith these hours, and opened by a Security Warden on duty in or near the Building.
Students who wish to work later, overnight, or at weekends must have a RED CARD, signed and completed by the Departmental Administrator, which permits access outwith normal hours on production to the Security Warden, along with Student card.
Within the open studio spaces students are generally provided with drawing boards, tables, chairs and lockers. Photocopying is available. Computers are located close to the studio areas. Screens define work bays and crit areas, the former being used to display on-going work.
Students are expected to care for the equipment with which they are provided, to respect the fabric of the building and to refrain from exhibiting material likely to give offence.
No solvent sprays (glue or paint) are allowed to be used inside the building.
The walls must not be sprayed, painted or drawn on. If this is done by arrangement with staff, when the presentation is over they must be repaired and painted out immediately. Pins only to be used, not velcro or screws. Furniture and all of your presentation must be removed as soon as your Reviews are completed and exhibition over, they will not be kept in the Gallery.
Failure to comply with the above may lead to disciplinary action. Lockers are provided near to each year studio area. Students are responsible for purchasing and using their own padlock. The lockers are returned to the pool at the end of each session, for maintenance prior to reissue the next session.
Official University notices are displayed on the University Notice Board in the ground floor entrance hall.
Competition, Departmental and Year notices appear at appropriate points in the Studios on the designated Year or Course Notice Boards. It is the responsibility of the student to scan these notices and act on the information presented.
All incoming mail addressed to individual students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, can be collected from the A-Z student mail boxes on the first floor, at the West end of the building, outside room F2.
Each student will also have a Strathclyde University e-mail address. E-mail is being used increasingly by class tutors and year conveners to communicate with students.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Emergency calls can be relayed via the Departmental Administrator, or General Office or the Security Office.
Safety - Fire Exits
There are emergency stairs at both the east and west ends of the building. At a fire alarm (real or practice) a bell will ring continuously; the building should be evacuated immediately (see Area Safety Regulations).
Medical certificates must be submitted to record prolonged absence due to illness. The University has a Medical Officer. In emergencies students should contact the appropriate Co-ordinator, any member of staff, or Security Wardens.
