Finding the Centre
The Centre is located on levels 2 and 3 of the AR Building (Arts Building) and in the SA Building (Science Annexe). The AR & SA buildings are centrally located in the Hawthorn Campus. If the building is difficult to find, ask a passing student to direct your to "Haddons", a coffee shop, that is located in the ground floor of the AR building. Once at the AR building, make your way up the first flight of stairs, through the double doors and find the Centre Administrator.
The Centre's VR Theatre is located on the ground floor of the AR Building (see Finding the Centre above), just to the left of Haddon's Cafe.
