Typical installations might include rooms containing dangerous mechanical equipment, or clinical and research areas containing hazardous or infectious agents. Eligibility for changing to a security keying system is evaluated jointly by the Department Facilitites Representative and the Campus Specific Access Compliance unit.

Eligibility for installation for a card access control system will be evaluated jointly by Facilities Management and the Department of Public Safety. Eligibility for access to controlled areas will be determined by the Department Facilities Representative at time of issuance.
