Student Lab Door Access Request

Door Access:

  • is the university's means for controlling admittance to most buildings and many student computing labs,
  • utilizes Vandal Cards rather than physical keys in many cases to unlock doors to protected areas and buildings, and
  • is granted by Unit Gatekeepers to specific doors or groups of doors based on affiliation with the University of Idaho.

For access to any door not currently opening upon the swipe of your Vandal Card, contact your Unit Gatekeeper. Department and Division leaders will know who their Unit Gatekeeper is if you are unsure.

It is the policy of the University of Idaho that after normal working hours all facilities shall be locked and secured in order to maintain the safety of both the facilities and their contents including any faculty, staff and/or students. Building card access systems allow for accountability in building access. Door access is granted for entry to University facilities for the purpose of conducting University business only.

 The most effective security happens when all University employees and students share in the responsibility of ensuring the safety integrity of all campus facilities.
