Cards feature a swipe facility enabling you to enter buildings you are authorised to access. Most students will not need access to secured areas on campus. Your department, faculty or unit will advise you if you need to activate your card for swipe access to any buildings or facilities.
The Security Service administers all secure building access on campus. You may only use your own card to enter any secured building.
To enable the swipe access function on your card, you should contact the administrator for the secured area. In most cases, this will be the area's department, faculty or unit. They will authorise your request and instruct the Security Service to grant you access.
You should inform HelpDesk or Service Connect as soon as possible if your card is lost or stolen to prevent unauthorised entry to secured areas.
Building access will be automatically cancelled when your card expires or you leave the University. All cancelled cards will be automatically disabled.
Tap your card against the reader (making good, flush contact) and hold it in place for three seconds.
For more information on building access, contact Campus Security.
