The room appears in more disrepair in Resident Evil 2 than it does in the desperate times scenario of Resident Evil Outbreak File #2. A bloodstain is present on the floor near the vending machines in the former game (pictured below), though was apparently caused by something occurring after desperate times.
Resident Evil 2
There is a Green Herb in the corner of the hall. During Leon A and Claire A, six zombies will be gathered in the corner. During Leon B and Claire B there will be six zombies in the lower part of the hall.
This area is only visited briefly in Memory of a Lost City 3 when Leon and Claire are in search for Sherry. There are no files or items in this room, only destroyable objects that drop gold and give points to the player.
Technically, there are 5 zombies in this room, though they will only spawn once Leon/Claire are in the East office, and they end up entering the office anyway.
Resident Evil 2 (2019)
