All buildings across all University campuses are accessible with a swipe card only during business hours, as well as after hours. Exceptions to this are the student hubs at North Terrace, Roseworthy and Waite, which do not require swipe card access between 9 am and 5 pm on weekdays.
Please keep your swipe card with you at all times while on campus. If you can not access a room or building please contact Security on 8313 5990 and they will be able to assist.
As part of the University's response to COVID-19 some buildings are being shut down. Learn more...
Most University buildings are secured with an access control system administered from the Security Office.
Your staff, visitor or student ID card will come pre-programmed with access to buildings, rooms and laboratories required for your employment or studies. If additional building access is required complete the access request form (staff and visitors) or contact your faculty or school office (students).
Building access requests typically take 2-3 business days to process.

Keys and building access cards for most buildings can be obtained from the Security Office at each campus. These must be returned daily. In some cases, Security may need to provide personal access to a building or room.
Contractors needing access to secured areas should request access through their University representative.
