Access to new Category B spaces in Building 9

Increased Divisional resources pose some challenges to the Technical Services Unit.

Since the spaces in Building 9 became the responsibility of the Division, there have been numerous requests for the rooms to be unlocked for scheduled classes and for casual use.

Often the doors have been left unlocked after the last occupant has departed.

The TSU does not provide security services, and staff needing access to these rooms should requisition the appropriate keys from their Head of School so they can access the spaces as required. They should also take responsibility for ensuring the spaces are locked when leaving.

The TSU has approached the University of many occasions to develop proposals for the installation of Cardax swipe card systems to access spaces around the Division (especially the Microteaching rooms in Building 5), but to no avail.
