How do we get past reception? (I can imagine sneaking past it, having studied at MIPT, but it's probably not the proper procedure, and doesn't work reliably.) Where on the 2nd floor? (I've never been in that building.)

By new rules anyone allowed to go inside, if any problem you should say "na seminar k Batinu" - it works. On second floor it will be or rector apartment, or "actovij zal", depending of availability and amount of people. We will put a paper with room number near the end of the stair. If any question, my phone +79166918960

Getting in would probably be settled with security by then, but in case of anything, call me +7 910 997 78 35.
