The vast majority of University buildings are secured through swipe access on your University card. Your University card will not give access to every building and no member of staff will have access to a building without good reason. Your University card will be activated to give you access to the building where you are located.

Building access can be requested; however, this is done on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of each building manager and requires a good reason for such access (e.g. contracted collaboration with an academic in that building).

Staff members can invite you to their place of work if you have meetings and this is the normal practice between staff at different locations. Buildings that are hosting a café or canteen often give any University cardholder access to these facilities with a simple sign-in sheet (for instance the Big Data Institute or Old Road Campus Research Building).

If you require a further access to be activated on your card additional to your main building, please speak to your Business Partnerships Office contact about this.
