Building Access and Hours

Last updated: July 10, 2014


This policy applies to Pacific Dugoni faculty, staff, students, patients, contractors, and vendors that require building access during normal building hours. The new Pacific Dugoni Campus at 155 Fifth Street is a High Security Building, and appropriate access control applications have been implemented to ensure enforcement of this policy. 


Access controls are designed to minimize potential exposure to the University resulting from unauthorized use of resources and to preserve and protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the University networks, systems and applications.


Access to the Pacific Dugoni campus will only be provided to users based on business requirements, job description and responsibilities, or other criteria submitted to the Department of Public Safety. All additions, changes, and deletions to individual system access must be approved by the appropriate department manager or direct. Account creation, deletion, and modification is managed by the Department of Public Safety utilizing both the Banner and Blackboard systems.

All faculty, staff, students and visitors (including patients, vendors, and contractors) must wear a noticeable form of Pacific Dugoni Identification at all times inside the building.  

Patients will check with Clinic Staff upon entry through the patient entrance. All vendors and contractors will check in with the Department of Public Safety at the First Floor Central Command Center.  

Guests of employees and students must be declared to the Department of Public Safety prior to their arrival. Guests will check in with the Public Safety Officer at the Fifth Street Faculty, Staff, and Student entrance to receive a visitor badge and be received by the person being visited.  

All deliveries will be made to the Loading Dock only.  

On an annual basis, the Department of Public Safety will review all user and administrative access controls.  Discrepancies in access will be reported to the appropriate department manager or director in the responsible unit, and remediated accordingly.
