Breaking(ish) News: New building access hours

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 12.01.31 PM

For those of you who missed the e-mail from Associate Provost Bradley Hartlaub, buildings equipped with card readers will now be locked and only accessible with K-Card starting at 5pm as opposed to 8pm. Hartlaub cited the need to “improve safety” in his e-mail as the reason for the change in building lockdown time. Students and faculty will continue to have open access to these buildings until midnight.

  1. Where is the evidence that we need to improve safety?
    Were K-card readers an unnecessary cost to be passed down to students?

    • last month, despite the k-card readers present at the back entrance to the building, a thermostat in the music building was bashed in and the heating system compromised (repairs cost a few thousand dollars, if i remember correctly). i don’t know whether that was a random incident or a symptom of something more systemic — i’d have to talk to safety. i agree 5 pm is a little extreme, but vandalism happens.
