Please be aware that our School of Medicine (SOM) buildings will move to card-access for exterior doors starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at 12pm. 

This is the same access condition as our typical after-hours schedule that normally occurs in the weekday evenings between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., and all day on the weekends.

Mandatory employees that are already on campus should use this time to check your ability to access the buildings where you work.

If you are working remotely, please do not feel the need to come to campus only to test your badge access. If you have ever come in after hours, on a weekend, or during a holiday and have been able to get where you need to go using your SOM badge, you should have the access rights that you need as long as your badge is not expired.

If you are unsure, or you are a mandatory employee with a SOM badge that has expired, please contact your department/unit who can check with our badge office.
