Exit BUCH D via the west doors, cross Crescent Road at the crosswalk right outside BUCH D, and then travel west on Crescent Road. There is a slight incline up Crescent Road. At the top of this incline, you will be in the Flag Pole Plaza. This is also a Mobility Assistance Shuttle stop.

The Rose Garden Parkade Elevator has an entrance from outdoors, on the east side of the plaza. Take the elevator down one floor to Level 5 (for University Centre Lower Level, UCLL) and exit into the parkade. Turn right to leave the parkade, and then turn left into the Rose Garden. Travel west through the middle path of the Rose Garden, and then continue down a slight decline towards UCLL.

This will be your view:

Enter the UCLL building through the doors on your left; these have a power-assist feature. Once inside the building, turn right, travel down the ramp, and turn right again. The Ideas Lounge (Room 174) will be on your right. Entrance to the room is by ramp or stairs.

All speakers at the event will use a microphone. There will be limited but some seating available.

The elevator might be in high use for Congress, so if stairs are an option for you, then there are several other possible routes, including a flight on the west side of Flag Pole Plaza
