Information on the building’s accessibility for persons with disabilities.
Located at 9A, Mickiewicza Avenue, the Collegium Padervianum II building, stands at the corner of Mickiewicza Ave and Krupnicza Street, on both sides surrounded by a pavement made of concrete slabs.
There are three entrances to the building:
1. the main entrance - located on the corner of Mickiewicza Ave and Krupnicza St.
2. a side entrance from the arcade on Krupnicza St, a single-wing door accessible after climbing three steps
3. side entrance from the internal courtyard, from the side of the Paderevianum building, 9B, Mickiewicza Ave.
It is located at the corner of the building, and an approach/ramp with a slight incline leads to it. There are three-step stairs on both sides of the ramp. The entrance has a sliding door that opens automatically. Inside, there are lifts on two sides of the lobby, stairs opposite the entrance, and the doorkeeper’s post on the right, between a lift and the stairs. Opposite the main entrance, slightly behind the stairs, there is an exit to the courtyard, which at the same time gives access to the Paderevianum building at 9B, Mickiewicza Ave. On both sides of the contrasting strip marking the route to the courtyard exit, just behind the stairs, stand small stone flower beds.
There are two lifts in the lobby with voice announcements and equipped with Braille buttons. The lift to the right of the main entrance serves floors minus 2 (basement) to 4. The lift to the left serves floors 0 to 4.
The building has five floors above ground plus two underground levels:
Level minus 2 - cellar, storage space - accessible only to staff.
Level minus 1 - underground car park, entrance from Krupnicza St, between the Collegium Paderevianum II and Auditorium Maximum buildings. There is a porter call button by the barrier on the left.
In the left wing of the building, on the left side of the corridor, there is a row of windows facing the arcades and Mickiewicza Ave:
- first door unmarked,
- the second - a lavatory adapted to the needs of persons with disabilities,
- Next, there are two (ladies/gent) lavatories in a recessed area ,
- room 1 is the office of the Student Union,
- rooms 2 and 3 are conference rooms.
Through the length of the corridor runs a series of pillars, located closer to the right side. There are chairs against the wall between the doors. The left wing ends with a door to an emergency exit.
To the right of the main entrance, in the corridor behind the doorkeeper’s post, there are staff rooms.
Each floor can be accessed by stairs or lifts.
The central part of each of the upper floors is constructed in the same way: there is a lobby with a glazed wall facing the corner of Mickiewicza Ave and Krupnicza St, two lifts (one to the left and one to the right of the glazing), stairs opposite the lifts and lavatories located in recessed areas behind the lifts.
On each floor, the lobby leads to two wings in the form of corridors to the left and right of the centre. For the purpose of the description, the left and right terms will be oriented in relation to the lifts.
On each floor, a plaque with the room number and information about what is inside in Braille is available at the door on the wall.

From floor 1 upwards, the lavatories are located in the same areas. Behind the lift, before entering the left wing, there is a gents lavatory in a recessed area (second door). A disabled lavatory and a ladies’ one are located in a recessed area to the right, before entering the corridor in the right wing.
There are designated parking spaces for persons with disabilities around the building - one is on the pavement along Krupnicza St, near the entrance to the underground car park. Two are available in the underground car park (entrance from outside available from Krupnicza St, between the Collegium Paderevianum II and Auditorium Maximum buildings. Entrance from inside the building: after exiting the lift at level minus 1, head for the first door on the left).
To get to the disabled parking space, after exiting the lift on level minus 1, turn first right and then twice slightly left. The parking spaces are located at the wall perpendicular to the entrance, on the right-hand side. They can be found at the two ends of the wall.
From both locations, it is easy to get to the lift - turn right along the car lane, behind the wall separating the parking spaces on the right-hand side there is a door. After passing through it, one can find, also on the right-hand side, a lift door and a panel to call the lift.
The evacuation of the building takes place via the evacuation routes towards staircases - which are separated for the purpose of fire protection and fitted with a smoke removal system - located at the ends of the building wings. On the top floor, there are evacuation chairs for persons with mobility disabilities. If necessary, they will be manned by designated and trained marshals (wearing reflective waistcoats). The assembly point is located in the courtyard of the Paderevianum building compound.
