Starting Thursday, Oct. 3, the front gate will be closed most of the day Monday through Thursday. It will open about 5:45 a.m. and remain open only until 8:45 a.m. On Fridays, the gate will stay open until 11:30 a.m. because the guard comes in later on Friday. It will then be closed until Monday morning.
If the guard is not available to let you in, you can push the button at the gate and call 1004, and the receptionist can open the gate for you. If the receptionist does not answer, or if it is after hours, contact one of the cottages from the list of extensions, and they can let you in by pushing ** on their phone. We will send a gate code to all supervisors so affected employees can let themselves in if no guard is on duty.
If you are expecting someone to come on campus, email the Security Group ahead of time and let them know who is coming and when. That way, the guard will expect them and let them in without having to check with someone. We may have to tweak this a little as we go along, so feel free to send suggestions to Charles Rich here on how we can improve it while maintaining a more secure campus.
