    Admission office sounds like the office dealing with the admission of new students at a university.

    Gooney is correct. "Admissions office" or "Office of Admission" is typically used to describe that department of a school or university which handles the admission of students.

    An "admission(s) desk" is sometimes found in a hospital and is where patients check in to be admitted, unless they were admitted through and by the Emergency Room. I suppose this could also be called an "Admissions Office," although in my experience, I have not seen it called such.

    The "office that each firm has at the entrance to a building" is, as panj noted, called a "reception desk." It is also known as a "reception area," unless it is in a doctor's office, and then it is called a "waiting room."
