The chart below reflects the hours that academic buildings are to be open for general use. Buildings will be opened in the mornings, Monday through Friday, by the custodial staff as close to, but no later than the prescribed time. Buildings will be opened by the Department of Public Safety (DPS) on Saturday and Sunday. The opening of buildings will entail simply unlocking the public entrances to the building.
Buildings will be secured in the evenings by DPS personnel as close to, but no earlier than the prescribed time. Securing the buildings will entail ensuring all entrances are locked from the outside, and that only faculty, staff, or other authorized personnel remain in the building.
Buildings will be opened and closed as outlined above when classes are in session and the University is open for business. To help ensure the security of the buildings and their contents the buildings will remain secured on weekends during academic breaks and during times when the University is closed for business such as holidays. During these times buildings will only be opened if there is a scheduled event taking place in the building.
Requests for an exception to the hours of operation for a specific building must be made in writing to DPS, with an informational copy provided to the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost. Exceptions for specific students to be allowed in the building outside of the normal operating hours must be granted by a School Dean. Each semester the Deans will consolidate a list of students, by School and building, who should be allowed to access and remain in academic buildings after normal operating hours. This list should be sent to and maintained by the Academic Affairs Office, and must be provided to DPS prior to the students on the list being allowed an exception to the hours of operation.
