Access to facilities

The Department of Mathematics is renovating the facilities in order to make them accessible for otherwise abled people. The historical premises of the Department is organized on various floors but it is accessible with lifts and special stairs. The new buildings (Povo 1 and IRST III) are accessible in all their parts.

Parking areas

The parking areas are internal courtyard with reserved parking lots for otherwise abled people. They are limited-access with barriers controlled by remote controllers. In case of an occasional visit, you will need to ring the doorbell at the main gate and wait for the gate to be opened by the welcoming staff. We advise you to announce your visit via phone or email. Permanent users are provided with an access card to access the reserved parking lots. You can access the rooms directly from the internal parking place, using the lifts-


The main entrance to the historical premises is accessible through a slide, close to the reserved parking places- The other three secondary entrances are also accessible. Two of them are close to the reserved parking places.
