Visiting us

The Brigstow 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. There are two other entrances into the house; one via the annex to the left of the main door, which includes some steps or via Royal Fort Gardens which has a ramp.

If you choose the annex entrance, the outer door is unlocked during working hours. Members of University staff can access the inner door using their U-Card. If you’re external to the university, please call us on 0117 428 2468 or 07740 101900 and we’ll come and meet you at the door. After the inner door, turn right; head through the next door (signposted Stairs to Upper Floors and Conference Rooms) then look left. If we’re in, the door to our room (G4) will be open. 

If you choose the Royal Fort Gardens entrance, face Royal Fort House with the Physics building behind you, turn right and follow the building around to the left until you see a ramp up to a door where you will need to use a U-Card. If you're external to the University, please call us on one of the numbers above and we'll meet you at the door. Once inside, turn right immediately after the staircase, head through the brown wooden door, go straight on and through the next door (signposted Reception and Exit). Our room (G4) is second on the right.
