Updated: 06/30/2023

To promote the safety and security of campus personnel and property, research and academic buildings have regular scheduled hours of operation. The custodial contractor and the Department of Public Safety are responsible for opening and closing/securing all non-electronic access research and academic buildings. Opening and closing of these buildings is as follows:

  1. Open at 6:00 a.m. Exceptions: Saturday, Sunday, and holidays
  2. Close at 6:00 p.m. Exceptions: Buildings used for evening classes close at 10 p.m.

After Hours Access:

Department Heads or Building Managers may authorize after-hours access to buildings or rooms for special meetings or events. Coordinating access for events that fall outside of regular scheduled building hours is the responsibility of the event organizer, Department Head and/or Building Manager. This responsibility includes unlocking the room or building before the event and securing the entire building after the event. Public Safety, Facilities Services, and the custodial contractor do not perform these services.
