CALENDAR OF EVENTS
The Departmental Office will be closed on Monday, October 10, 2005 for Thanksgiving. Have a great long weekend!
|ACCESS DOORS - FIRST
The access doors will be operational on the first floor of Humphrey Hall in the near future. These doors will be locked by 6:00 p.m. every day and locked all weekend.
The swipe cards that most members of the Department currently carry will be modified to include these doors so that you will have after hours access. If you do not have a swipe card, or if people in your lab do not have one and require after hours access, please contact Jill Moore with a list of names.
Please note that the north door entrance (off of Arch Street) will be locked between 4:00 and 4:30 Monday to Friday and that access will still be available through the other access points.
It is particularly important that the doors are not blocked open and that you do not let people in who are not authorized for access after 6:00 p.m. Research participants will have to wait in the lobby and be met there at the assigned time.
We hope to have everyone assigned access no later than the end of next week and at that time we will begin to have the doors automatically lock by 6:00 p.m. so that access is limited to the three classrooms and washrooms on the first floor of Humphrey Hall in the evenings.
