No it wasn't! You just didn't look hard enough. ;-)

with big padlocks on them. I spent 20 minutes or so walking
around the building and all of the buildings adjacent to it.
There were no entrances that I could see that were not locked.
I tried the handle on every door that I found. They were all

Perhaps it was easy to find if you were a uni student and know
the secret entrances into the building, which I failed to find.
Trouble is, I went to Uni of WA and not USyd. So perhaps you
need to restrict these meetings to USyd old boys, put a sign up
(or perhaps several), or make them easier to find.
