Access Requests

All Access Requests for faculty and staff must be submitted by the appropriate department chair or division head.  Secretaries may submit the forms electronically, copied to the head or chair.

Access requests must be made for any secured area, including building exterior doors, interior office and classroom doors, labs, practice rooms, and any other specialty areas.

Please note that residence hall access for resident students and housing staff is managed directly by Housing and Residential Life.  Employees who require access to the residence halls however, should still submit their access requests to The WESTCONNect Office.

Access Request Process

All access should be submitted on the official access request form. No old forms, emails requests, or spreadsheets will be accepted.  Only forms with authorization from the appropriate Department or Division Heads or Deans in the form of a signature or inclusion on an e-mailed form will be accepted.  To obtain a copy of the instructions for access submission, click here.


Expiration Dates

All students, university assistants, adjunct faculty, part time employees, and contractors  are granted access for the current semester (Fall, Winter Intersession, Spring, and Summer). At the end of the semester when the access was requested, it will expire.

Full time staff and faculty do not have expiration dates on their clearance assignments unless specified.
