New library entrance card readers at Cecil H. Green Library
The entry turnstiles and other building-access card readers in Cecil H. Green Library will be upgraded during Thanksgiving Recess, starting Monday, November 25, 2013.
The new cards will have the required proximity chip that will unlock the turnstiles. You will be able to hover your card over a sensor to unlock the turnstile or open a door. The reader is sensitive enough that you will likely be able to keep your card in your wallet or bag but still have it read by the sensor.
How do I know if I need a new card?
If your university ID card was issued in 2005 or earlier, please go to the Campus Card Office for a free replacement card that will have a proximity chip in it that will provide you access to the library and gym's new card readers. If your library-only SUL card was issued before October 10, 2013, please go to the Privileges Desk in Cecil H. Green Library for a replacement card. Bring a valid government ID for all card replacements.
- Call the Campus Card Office (725-2434) and give them your ID number and ask them if you need a new card.
- Replacement cards that need a proximity chip will be FREE.
- If you need a new card, you can upload your own photo for your ID 1-2 days in advance of going to the Campus Card office for your replacement card. Oddly enough, staff have to use the student services portal to upload the picture, see upper right hand side of the page.
- If you get a new card, you'll need to get replacement Go/Caltrain passes from Parking and Transportation right away.
