Card Access Upgrade Project

The initial card access project is nearing completion, the control panels and magstripe readers have all been replaced and we are in the final stages of programming access levels and assigning them to card holders.

The final stage of the project includes additions to the system - exterior doors at Weyerhaeuser Hall, 77 Mac, Old Main, and Carnegie.

If you experience any problems accessing areas you normally use, please do not hesitate to call security at 651-696-6555 or email .
