Visiting us

The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute is located in Royal Fort House.

Royal Fort House is located behind the Physics building on Tyndall Avenue. You can find it by following the signs at the intersection of Woodland Road and Tyndall Avenue, opposite Senate House.

Please note the main door is normally closed and the entrance into the house is via the annexe to the left of the main door.

The door to the annexe is unlocked during working hours. Members of University staff can access the inner door using their U-Card. External visitors should use the phone on desk to call the EBI Admin office (press 2) who will then release the inner door. Turn right; then through three sets of doors until you find a formal hallway. Take the staircase to the first floor and the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute administrative offices are the third door on your right. The Verdon-Smith Room is the first room on your left. 

Disabled Access

Royal Fort House has disabled access to the ground floor rooms via a ramp at the rear entrance.  Please contact us in advance if you need to use this entrance as you will need to be let in.
