Effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020 beginning at 6:00 a.m. the university will operate under a “card access only” model.  

During this time, buildings/rooms with electronic access control readers will require the use of RU ID cards for entry at all times. Only RU IDs with appropriate permission(s) will provide access to these locations.  In light of this important change of protocol, all Rutgers community members should be sure to have their IDs with them whenever they are on campus.

If you do not have access permissions to a specific location, you will need to contact the Access Control Coordinator designated for the building/department to request access.  A list of Access Control Coordinators, by campus, can be viewed at

RBHS buildings are excluded from the above.
