What is Card Access?

For enhanced security, Macalester College uses a card access system instead of keys to gain access to many buildings and rooms. Campus community members gain access to these buildings and rooms by swiping or waving their Macalester ID through—or near—a card reader. Most buildings are locked all weekend and between 10:00 PM and 7:30 AM on weekdays. Schedules may vary depending upon the use of the building. 

Report Lost or Stolen Card

If your card is lost or stolen, protect yourself and the Campus community from its potential misuse. 

  1. Call Safety and Security at 651-696-6278 to request that your card access be deactivated. This will prevent unauthorized individuals from entering campus buildings.
  2. Deactivate your GET Funds account online to block unauthorized purchases.
