The building is also equipped with lifts (lift card available in room 120) and toilets for persons with disabilities.

Applications for a person’s with disabilities assistant or other assistance for students with disabilities can be submitted to the Head of the Department for disabled persons / Rector’s Proxy for students with disabilities (room 207).
