Key and Card Access

Card Access Administration

The UWB/CCC campus utilizes an access card operating system to control entry into all operational buildings, most computer labs and some classrooms. The system is administered by Security & Campus Safety. If you require an access card or need to have your access updated contact your department’s Access Controller, who will then forward the request via email to

Key Administration

All key requests must go through the Access Controller for your department who will forward to Security & Campus Safety, who will then forward to Facilities. Security will advise when the key is ready for pickup, and the requestor will need to sign for the key at the Security Office, LB2 005.

Once issued, the key becomes the responsibility of the key holder, and must be turned back in to Security & Campus Safety at the completion of the key holder's employment.

The Security Office is responsible for issuing keys and access cards to buildings and offices at all UWB and Cascadia facilities. A key request form, signed by the employee and the department administrator, must be presented at the Security Office before keys will be issued. Separate key request forms are necessary if an employee requires keys in more than one division or department.

Keys/access cards must be returned to the Security Office when an individual leaves a department or leaves UWB employment altogether. If a faculty or staff member neglects to turn in keys upon leaving UWB employment, his/her final paycheck may be held until the keys are received in the Security Office.

Keys/access cards to the university facilities may not be duplicated, loaned to other UWB employees, or loaned to non-employees.

Lost Keys and Access Cards

Lost keys should be reported to Campus Security promptly. If re-keying is necessary because of loss, the labor and materials costs will be recharged to the department budget.
