I showed up but there was no access to get to the 2nd floor for the class. The elevator was working at every floor except the 2nd. I tried to get off at the 3rd floor and use the stairs to get to the 2nd but it was just an emergency exit. I even tried banging on that door but no response. I went back outside and buzzed the 2nd floor again but their was no response
