Access Control

Access Control/Key Requests

All card/key requests must be made through the designated person in your department (Resource Manager/Receptionist etc).

Lost/Stolen cards must be reported immediately so that the card can be blocked and a replacement card issued. Replacement cards are charged at £5 and payment must be made via the Online Shop

Additional access must also be authorised by your resource manager/line manager and a request made in email to: Estates Security

Building access control Standard access

Once a building has been fitted with new Salto readers, all staff will be able to access all main entrance doors, which are not considered high risk, between 07:30 and 21:00 Monday to Friday.  High risk areas include plant rooms and some buildings by the nature of the activities that take place within them will remained locked and only available to those with approved access rights.  Similarly, all students will be able to access all main entrance doors, which are not considered high risk, between 07:30 and 21:00 Monday to Friday.

The main entrance door is typically where there is a staffed reception point, although there are some exceptions to this.

Non-standard access

If you require access to buildings outside of the standard hours, or access to high-risk areas, which you don’t have already, contact your resource manager/departmental secretary.  If you need access in an emergency out of hours, please contact the Security Control Centre on (01443) 482057 where security staff may be able to escort you to and from your destination (operational commitments permitting).

If you need access to a building(s) which is outside your department/faculty/division, please complete a request in email to Andrew.Moore and Chris Beazer for them to approve and extend your access privileges.

Updating access control rights

If you have a problem using your staff ID card you should contact your resource manger/departmental secretary.
