2.26 Access To Buildings

Last Revised: 18 Oct 2002

Refer Questions to: Executive Director, Business & Support Services

Scope

This policy applies to faculty, teachers, and staff in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.

Policy

Buildings on the Gallaudet University campuses are kept open during regular business hours. After hours, buildings are locked to provide for the security of University personnel and assets.

Faculty, teachers, and staff employees may enter University buildings after hours and on weekends to conduct official University business. Employees may, however, be asked by safety personnel to show proper identification. Employees returning to campus after regular business hours who have not been issued a building or office key or access card must obtain written approval from the department supervisor and must first report to the Department of Public Safety to gain access to the building.

Employees are not to permit unauthorized personnel into the buildings. Further, employees are not to remove any materials or equipment without the written approval of the unit administrator.

Employees are encouraged to contact the Department of Public Safety if they observe any persons on campus whose presence seems to be unauthorized or undesirable.
