We also have an accessible entrance for those who need to bypass the stairs available on the first floor of DuSable, kitty corner from the DuSable elevator. Ring the doorbell for access and one of our workers will be happy to help you.

If anyone should need to bypass the stairs to the Language Learning Center, here is the procedure:

Use the elevator on the second level of DuSable just inside the main doors; proceed to the 1st (ground) floor; the elevator comes out in front of the TA office (DU 137). Access to the Learning Center is available by proceeding down the hall and through the swinging doors next to DU 154 and then going through the back (fire) door in the LLC. (Note: normally, for reasons of safety, the fire door is not open.) A doorbell has been installed outside of the fire doors. Our student workers will respond to the bell and swiftly assist anyone needing special entry via this back door.
