This room is a bit tricky to get to because the escalators only go to the 4th floor and do not go to the 4CM mezzanine level. Give yourself time to find the room. Either  take the Centennial Hall elevator direct to the 4CM level, or take the Lockhart Hall (Ellice entrance) elevator to level 5 and cross over from the Lockhart level 5 to Centennial Hall 4CM (note, this elevator isn’t always available) or take the escalators to the 4th floor and then use the stairs between the escalator and library to reach the 4CM level.
