Update on Campus ID Policy and Security Enhancements
Over the course of the last six months, a number of changes have been made to our approach for managing the campus, including specific steps to enhance the campus security to better serve our students, faculty and staff. We have staffed the main entrances to the Academic Center, Bogomolny Library, Student Center and the Angelos Law Center, and require that all visitors sign in at these locations. We also require the use of Bee Card to enter the Liberal Arts and Policy building at all times. Along with these changes, the Campus Identification Card Policy (attached for reference) was revised and approved by President Schmoke in May 2018. Please note that the policy states “all UB students, faculty and staff are required to obtain, carry and display the Bee Card in a visible manner at all times while inside UB buildings.”
The feedback we have received in response to these changes has been positive, and as a continuation of our efforts to enhance security measure the following changes will be put in place starting Wednesday, November 7, 2018:
- Consistent with the Campus Identification Card Policy, UB students, faculty and staff will be expected to display their Bee Card in a visible manner while inside the campus buildings.
- The Academic Center will be accessible to the public at only the main entrance, located at 1420 N. Charles Street. All other entrances into this building will require the use of a bee card at all times.
- The Business Center and Learning Commons will require the use of a bee card at all times. Visitors to these buildings that do not possess a Bee Card will need to first sign in at the Academic Center main entrance.
As these changes are implemented, please be mindful that having your Bee Card displayed will allow you to more easily navigate around our buildings – essentially it serves as a key to our campus. It will also help our security and facilities staff so we can be of assistance to both campus community members and visitors.
