All 3 locations - the 2 library rooms in the Irving K. Barber learning centre, and the Hebb theatre - are within 100 metres of each other. They are in the very centre of campus, and the Hennings building (Physics and Astronomy) is located between the Main Library and the Hebb theatre. Please look at your maps to verify this.
We will attempt to signpost the location of the rooms in the library. If you do get lost, look for any sign which has the PiTP logo on it - seen at the bottom of this page.
