The main entrance to the Sanctuary and Fuller Hall is on the corner of SW Main at 12th. A short stairway inside leads up to the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary building, however, is fully accessible from street level via the single door on SW 12th about half way up the block. An elevator located just inside will take you up to the Sanctuary level, or down to Fuller Hall.

Eliot Chapel faces SW 12th, at the corner of Salmon. A short set of steps lead from the sidewalk to the Chapel front doors. However, full accessibility to Eliot Chapel is available by going down the brick walkway to the left of the building, then entering the right-side door, and proceeding forward to the indoor Chapel entrance on Eliot Hallway.
