Room numbers when shown on timetables or in publications indicate the building, the floor and the room. When on a door sign within a building only the floor and room are shown. Basement floors begin with B, ground with G, first with 1 and so on. Room numbers start with .01 and run sequentially through the floor, so first floor rooms would run 1.01, 1.02, 1.03.
Please check carefully when accessing rooms in 32L – e.g. 32L.G.10 is a ground floor room, not Lower Ground.
