    2. You may arrive by taxi and get off at University Centre (UC). Tory Building (TB) is immediately behind UC. Walk to the south corner of UC and take the slowly ascending concrete path to pass the slope of tall pine trees. You will see a side entrance of TB.

    3. If you arrive by bus, get off at the main bus stop on the west side of the Otrain station. Look into the south direction of the bus route and you will see in the 1 o'clock direction a blue glass building, which is Tory Building. The highest building (DT) is in the 2 o'clock direction.
