On Campus 

Our Laboratories are in the Ramsden Workshops, buiding 23 on the Campus map.  From the main university entrance, take the road on the right and it's just under the bridge, with a big MEIS sign.

Our offices are in the Researcher Hub, building 18 on the Campus map.  Go past the Ramsden workshops and take the next left turn, leading slightly downhill. At the next road junction turn right, and it's the building on the right. We are on the 1st and 2nd floors.
