The Abbot's Kitchen Training Room is located on the ground floor (Level 4) of The Radcliffe Science Library, on the opposite side of the car park from the Entrance Hall.  There is no direct access from the car park or Entrance Hall so it is reached via Level 5.

The room is used to offer induction sessions, courses for undergraduates and postgraduates, Bodleian iSkills sessions and in-house (staff) training.

When not in use for training the room is available as a computer drop-in cluster for all RSL readers.  A calendar of scheduled training is posted on the door of the room and there is a "Room in Use" sign.  

The room is also available for hire by departments, charities, organisations and businesses.
