Keycard/Electronic Door Access Request Process

Keycard/Electronic Door Frequently Asked Questions

No. The person responsible for the Building, your Department, or Access Approver Delegate must submit the Authorization for Adding Keycard Access for UofL Students/Employees form.

Check with your Vice-President, Dean, Chairman, Director, Department Head, Unit Business Manager, or the Facility Coordinator. You can also send an email to the Department of Public Safety and request this information.

Immediately report lost or stolen badges to ULPD Dispatch at (502) 852-6111. They will need to know your: First Name, Last Name, and Employee/Student ID# in order to have the badge deactivated. You can purchase a replacement badge from the Cardinal Card office in Houchens Building LL05.

In order for your access to be restored, the encoded number on your new keycard must be updated in the Physical Access Control System (PACS). ULPD performs one manual PACS download of new keycard numbers printed by the Cardinal Card Office each weekday. This import typically occurs between 1pm – 3pm each day. The Cardinal Card Office can also update your keycard number in the PACS at the time that your badge is printed.

The number is printed on the back of the card.

You may submit access inquiries to the Department of Public Safety. Important information to include in your inquiry is the cardholder's: First/Last Name, Employee/Student ID #, and the printed number on the back of card.

Legacy keycards are Cardinal Cards issued prior to July 1, 2012. It’s recommended that Legacy keycard holders get issued a new Cardinal Card from the Cardinal Card Office to ensure no interruption to keycard door access.

Please email additional questions to the Department of Public Safety.
