Proximity cards will allow students greater access to some Divisional facilities.

Over the next month University contractors will be installing CardAX access to a number of rooms in Building 5 and Building 9. Security has advised us that there will be some noise and disruption associated with the installation of the card system when the installations begin in two or three weeks time. The contractor has been asked to keep the noise and disruption to a minimum but expect drilling, hammering and dust.

Please bear with this short-term pain in order to enjoy the longer-term benefits of giving students greater and more convenient access to Divisional facilities.

Proposed lab rules (based on existing practices and the new situation) that will govern the rights and responsibilities of the staff and students accessing the facilities are being developed and will be presented to the IT & Infrastructure Committee for discussion at its next meeting.
