Access Control Systems

At UC Santa Cruz, we employ the usage of security systems for buildings on campus that need to utilize more conventional security standards through an assesment by our Physical Security Systems team.

We use multiple systems dependent upon the level of security required for a facility.

  • We have systems that allow for 24/7 monitoring via our campus dispatch operations center
  • We offer systems for lower security facilities that eliminate the use of brass keys in favor of electronic access control
  • Housing maintains a proprietary system to control access to individual housing units 

For access to department buildings for after-hours use or to register for electronic access, contact your department's office for more information. For information on ID Card Services, you can access the information here.
