Building Access

After you get your Cal 1 Card, please submit a Building Access Form to get basic graduate student level clearances for the EECS buildings. Basic graduate level clearances includes building entries, grad student offices, conference rooms, and lounges. Access to research labs and other restricted spaces will require authorization from your advisor and/or lab PI. If you find your card is not working at any time, please visit the front desk at 387 Soda Hall.
