There are restroom facilities within the building which are located near the entrance facing Barnes Road, which will be the main entrance and exit of the building during Squadron Leadership School.

There is handicap accessibility to the building which is found on the north side of the building and leads into the main conference room if there are any students or instructors who need this access for mobility.

Parking area that will be designated for the school will be the large parking lot across from Bldg. 1155 on Barnes Road. Please use the cross walk when walking to and from the parking lot.

Handicapped students and instructors may park in the small parking area on the north side of the building for easier and shorter access to the building. This parking area is designated only for these individuals as there is fire department access to the building as well as the surrounding buildings which must be clear for access in case of an emergency.

Please do not park in the parking lot behind the building as that is reserved for wing headquarters and the surrounding hotels
