facility access
facility access

After normal business hours, manual locking or unlocking of buildings is the responsibility of the ULPD. During the normal workday, locking/unlocking is provided by the department responsible for the space or UofL's Physical Plant.

We will not open rooms or facilities without the proper authorization from the person responsible for the facility. Persons who have no other means of entry, (i.e. students, temporary or part-time employees, etc.), must be listed on an Authorization Entry List Form on file at the Department of Public Safety.

Many buildings are set up on an electronic schedule to lock and unlock. To obtain electronic access for any individual(s) after-hours or for secure buildings, the department chair, dean, unit leader, lead fiscal officer, etc. must fill out an Electronic Access Form (UofL) to authorize. Requests are usually completed within 24 hours.

If there is need to grant access for any individual(s) not part of the university community (contractors, vendors, researchers, and/or visitors), the requesting department will be required to Electronic Access Form (non-UofL) to authorize. The requesting department is responsible for the distribution and cost of the vendor card(s).

The University Police receive specialized training in and actively promote the concept of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). CPTED strategies enhance facility security through design and use of space. These concepts are considered more appropriate to an academic setting since they tend to heighten awareness, expose criminal behavior and create a higher level of personal comfort for building occupants. Contact Kayla Matola for further information.

ULPD must approve the purchase and installation of all security systems for buildings on each campus. Units or departments interested in acquiring a security system must first submit the Security System Request Form.

Upon receipt of this form, the Physical Security Coordinator will contact the individual regarding all security needs. This process is meant to ensure that all security equipment be centrally managed and monitored by ULPD in accordance with university policy.
