NOTICE:  As part of our continuing efforts to improve the safety and security of our campus, our next phase of Access Control will be activated on Monday, April 14.  During normal working hours, Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM, anyone will be able to come and go as they do presently.  After those hours, on weekends and on holidays, access will only be permitted with official picture ID cards.  These cards are proximity cards and will activate readers placed at entry doors or elevators where Access Control has been installed.  

All faculty, staff and students (and MCLNO employees on the downtown campus) will be able to gain access at any time with your picture ID proximity card.  Some areas will be restricted to only specifically authorized individuals such as loading dock doors, animal care areas, the 7th floor data center in the Resource Center and certain core labs.
