How to read the classroom/lecture theatre room numbers

The letter is the name of the block, the first number (usually 1 or 2) means the level/floor the room is on: 1 is the ground floor or bottom level, 2 means it is up one level/floor. The number after the decimal point is the room number on that floor.

Example: B2.31 means that the room is in B Block, it is upstairs and is room 31.
