Access to Campus Facilities (Policy SW-28)

Students, faculty and employees of Clarkson College have access to most facilities on campus. However, certain classrooms and departments are open only to those who require access to them. Clarkson College allows after-hour access to campus facilities for individuals who have been assigned a key card. Clarkson College has a Residence Hall that has access only for residential students who office in the Residence Hall.


Assigning of Key Cards:

  • Key cards are assigned to faculty and staff by UNMC Card Access Services.
  • Key cards are assigned to students by the Facilities department.
  • All key cards are activated by the Facilities department.

Card Key Access:

  • Our Main Building, Clarkson Commons and Education Center, and Student Center are secured at all times and only accessible by key card access.
  • Our Residence Hall is secured at all times and only accessible by residential students in the Residence Hall.
  • Specific floors, departments and classrooms have card key access. Each access point may have individual hours, which may vary at different times of the year. In these cases, the areas will be secured according to schedules developed by the department responsible for that area.

Key Access:

  • Employees are assigned keys for their specific office, department and classroom as needed.
  • Residential students are assigned keys to their suite and bedroom.

Security considerations used in the maintenance of the campus:

  • All key cards and keys are generally inventoried on an annual basis.
  • The key card system is monitored during business hours to ensure.
  • A safety and security walk-through is conducted two times a year by students and staff to access any areas of concern. Any problem areas are assessed and responded to promptly.
