The main entrance to the College is on Merton Street via the large wooden gates (under the tower). If the doors are closed, the Porters can open the main doors to allow level access to the Porters’ Lodge, and then Front Quad, Fellows’ Quad, St Alban’s Quad, Mob Quad, Grove Buildings, and (via the Fellows’ Garden) Rose Lane.
Once in the College, there is level access between all the quads, the Chapel and the gardens and buildings beyond.
The Merton site has several entrances. The Rose Lane end of the site (to the east) can be accessed through the North Lodge gate or the Mure Arch gate by students and staff with key fob access.
The Fellows’ Garden can be accessed from within the main site pending the Garden Gate being open. Otherwise it is accessed via a narrow and steep set of steps. For guarenteed level access there is a route also through a doorway (the ‘late gate’) off Merton Street and down and a ramp into the grounds. Again, key fob access is required.
Regular users and disabled visitors to the College will be issued with a key fob that operates the power doors. These doors are located in St Alban’s (for access to the JCR) and Mob Library. In addition, the accessible rooms in Grove 2, Mob 2.5 (both on the main site), and in Block B on the Holywell site, each contain power doors.
