1. Campus card reader test will take place tomorrow

The Department of Public Safety will run a lockdown test of campus card readers Thursday, Jan. 3, at approximately 10:15 a.m. During the test, which is anticipated to last less than five minutes, all card readers on campus will lock. Those who have clearance on their MUID card to enter a given door will still be able to do so during the drill. Those who do not have MUID clearance to enter given doors will be unable to open those doors during the drill. 

The ability to lock down all card readers on campus is a critical function for the campus community in case of an emergency. For additional information, contact DPS at 8-6800.
