Key and Card Access

Main page content

UW Tacoma utilizes a electronic access card-operated security system to control after-hours access to buildings and most computer labs and classrooms. Most individual offices are secured with standard key locks. All key and card access requests are handled online. When you make a request please specify which campus buildings, rooms and hours are needed to ensure that electronic key cards and physical keys are issued to authorized faculty and staff.
