The door will be locked, ring the doorbell pinned to the door (not the one on the frame!) to attract attention.

Note that we are now “IT Services” rather than “OUCS”.
There is limited parking available which should be adequate (given recent attendance numbers) for those who wish to park close to the building. Entering from the Banbury Road you will appear to be pulling in to the car park of the Old Parsonage Hotel, that's fine, just go round to the right behind our building where there should be plenty of space. There is also an entrance from the Woodstock Road next to the brick-built bus shelter opposite thee old Radcliffe Infirmary site.
Alternatively, car drivers can use the Park&Ride service from the northern (Peartree) site. Get off the Park&Ride bus opposite the old Radcliffe Infirmary site. Adjacent to the brick-built bus shelter is the rear entrance to the car park, walk through to the Banbury Road frontage, turn right to find the central front door.
From the railway station (stop R5) buses 14 or 14A run every half-hour to the Banbury Road.

Bring your own lunch, or get something at one of the nearby establishments.
A hot drinks machine (tea, coffee, hot chocolate) is available, PUG will provide coins (and instructions!) to operate it. Please use your own coins if you want to use the adjacent canned drinks machine.
PUG will supply biscuits for those requiring a sugar-rush.
There will be a number of computers available for those who want to get direct help with Pedigree/Tree. I suggest that you:
We expect to have two laptops available running Windows 7 and another two running Windows 8 - but please give Murray and Colin priority on the Windows 8 machines!
If you have a large (and legal!) download you want to do, the lecture room network will be running 10+ times faster than your home network!
We will have one or two machines running the NBI (version 3) if you want to check that for ancestors.
We hope to have access to FindMyPast for the day.
