Accessibility to the APUO building
For the next two months, accessibility to the APUO building situated at 170 Waller will be compromised due to ongoing construction work related to the installation of a wheelchair lift. In our attempts to maintain accessibility to our services, please contact the APUO should you need to meet in another location.
