Administrative and Academic Buildings and many residential buildings are
accessible via Card Access. Your RISD ID is set to give you access to buildings
by waving the card in front of the proximity reader at the entrance to the
building or room (some readers require you to swipe your card). All RISD
community members are required to have their RISD ID with them at all times and
to present their ID to a Public Safety officer if asked. If you lose your RISD
ID or it is stolen please report it to Public Safety immediately so that it may
be shut off to prevent your card from being used by unauthorized persons to
gain access to RISD Buildings.
The Card Access system notifies
Public Safety via audible alarm when a reader-equipped door is held or forced
open. No doors on campus should be propped open at any time.
For safety reasons, students, staff,
and faculty may not remain in a building after the building closes.
