For the First Year Students

First-year students, do you know how not to get lost in IIR? 

When on the first day you find yourself in the hall of the Institute, you immediately feel both the special atmosphere of this place and a slight excitement and a confusion.

Pretty soon you will be on home ground here, however now, in order not to get lost in all the passages and corridors, look at the IIR map, or even better save it to your smartphone.

Besides the numbers over the doors of the offices, the signs above the entrance to the corridors will help you navigate.
