The procedure for authorizing access into doors with keycard locks follows below.  Faculty and staff are encouraged to submit student authorization lists for the semester as soon as possible to .  Please note that a signed copy of all student authorizations also needs to be forwarded to the Office of Campus Safety. 

In an effort to make the process of staff and students obtaining access into doors with keycard locks, the e-mail address has been created. Requests to allow access into buildings and rooms and questions or problems with these locks should be to this address. The account is monitored by the Help Desk as well as Facilities staff and Campus Safety, so that the necessary encoding and programming may be completed as efficiently as possible.


The following is the procedure to be utilized by faculty and staff for authorizing students to have card key access to buildings and rooms after hours:

1)  Faculty/staff member e-mails request to authorizing student access after hours. A signed copy of the request must also be sent to Campus Safety.

2)  The authorization must include: name and student number for each student, room/office numbers into which student has access, and duration of authorization.  All authorizations normally expire at the end of each semester.

3)  IT and Facilities staff will complete the necessary data entries for each authorization, normally within five business days.  Due to the volume of requests, this may take longer at the beginning of the semester.  Students may contact Campus Safety to obtain access until the encoding and updating process has been completed.

4)  The requesting faculty or staff member will be sent an e-mail confirmation when the work has been completed.


Only Vice-Presidents or Department Heads may authorize staff members to have access to areas with key card locks. An e-mail detailing the name of the staff member needing access and the buildings and room numbers for which the particular staff member is to have access should be sent to . The request will then be handled as above
