Location and Address

Room 260 in the School of Nursing, also known as the ETI Multipurpose Room, is located on the second floor of the Victoria Building.  A sign for ETI, which stands for Educational Technology and Innovation, is just outside the entrance on the second floor.  People should enter here and follow the hallway to the front desk.  At the front desk, they should turn left to enter room 260.  If they have any trouble finding the room, someone at the ETI front desk can direct them.

For people who are familiar with Starzl BST, they simply need to cross the pedestrian bridge from BST to the Victoria Building and take the stairs or elevator to the second floor.  The ETI is midway down the main hallway on the second floor.  This link provides a map with directions to the Victoria Building for people who are not familiar with that route:  http://www.nursing.pitt.edu/about/map-directions
