Between the pandemic and the fact that I work part-time, I am unlikely to be in my office, except during announced drop-in office hours and by appointment.

If you encounter any difficulty following these directions, for example, if you use a wheelchair or crutches and cannot navigate steps or open the fire doors, please do call my office phone, listed above, and I will come out to meet you, or we will agree on a different location.
