West Cambs site


The MRRC is located to the rear of the large central building of the Cavendish Laboratory, the Bragg Building. The Bragg Building contains the reception to the Department of Physics; it is not necessary to report here, but they will be happy to offer directions if needed. To reach the MRRC walk down the path to the right (South) of the Bragg building as far as you can, passing firstly the Mott Building and then an open space to the right. At the T-junction of the path the MRRC is located just ahead of you and to your left. Please use the intercom at the front door.
