Access Control

All staff and students are given a University of Warwick ID card to provide access to buildings and facilities.

We have been updating the door access card readers across campus and answered some FAQs about the process here:

What will happen?
The old card reader will be removed and replaced with a new unit.
Do I need to do anything?
If you have an older issue blue Warwick ID card you should get a replacement to ensure it will work with the new system.
You can do this by visiting Senate House or University House reception to replace your card from Monday to Friday between 9:30am and 4:30pm.
Please note that we are advising that University ID cards are only required if you are working on campus presently so if you need a replacement card we ask you to defer this request until your return to campus
Once the new readers are installed the first time you use your card please hold it on the reader for 10-15 seconds so it is registered on the system after which access should operate as normal.
Will I still have access?
The access you had on the old system will in most cases be carried over to the new system. If you feel you should have access to a certain area that you now do not have please email Cardoffice@warwick.ac.uk and explain where the issue is.
