Card Readers and Access Control

Departments and facilities on campus use card reading systems on doors, vending machines, turnstiles and devices to control access to buildings and rooms. Campus Card systems are centrally-maintained by OIT. OIT also coordinates installation and maintenance of new systems and card readers.

Card readers include the familiar “swipe” type as well as proximity readers. Access can be restricted by day of the week and time of day, and can be set up to provide access on an individual basis, or by department or class list. Scheduling can be centrally programmed by Campus Safety.
