Tips for Card Key Access
Moving into your residence hall or 1480 Campus Road:
RETURNING STUDENT WITH ID? You will need to re-encode your card at a self-service kiosk (in the Housing Office in Berkus Hall or at the Card Office in Johnson Student Center) to gain access to your room.
RETURNING STUDENT WITH NO ID CARD? If you are moving into or returning to campus housing and do not have your ID card, you need to order a new card on-line and pick it up from the Card Office before you check in.
NEW STUDENT? Your ID card will be pre-encoded with building and room access.

You may contact the Card Office at email@example.com.

If you can't remember your pin, or have other questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. ***SEE FLASHING RED & GREEN LIGHTS UPON ENTERING YOUR PIN? THE BATTERIES IN YOUR LOCK ARE RUNNING LOW. Report this to REHS or the Card Office immediately!***
