After-Hours Building Access:

The E-Quad building is locked from 7pm to 7am the next business day. Should you need to access the building after business hours, please submit your request here. We will obtain approval from your PI before processing your request.

Keys:

Office and lab keys are issued under the agreement that the holder will reimburse the Department of Electrical Engineering $25 upon failure to return each key issued to them. Lost keys will be replaced at a cost of $25 per loss. The replacement fee must be paid in cash or check prior to the key being re-issued. Excessive requests for replacement keys may result in the need to replace the room core or multiple cores. Many department keys have multiple layer access such as unlocking main doors in addition to individual offices. Lost keys compromise the security of the entire building not just the office to which they are issued. The cost of these re-cores will be the responsibility of the key holder.
