Building Access (Keys/ID cards)
If you need access to the CSE building or any of the offices within the CSE building, you will need to have your ID card programmed into the building lock system and possibly pick up a key (if you have an office in the building).
Our facilities manager, Dave Wargo, takes care of lock programming and key distribution. To have your ID card programmed into the system or to pick up a key, you may stop by the CSEHelp offices during the office hours listed below and ask for Dave.
- Monday: 9am – 11am
- Thursday 2pm – 3:30pm
- By appointment (send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org)
The CSEHelp offices are located on the first floor of the CSE building. From the lobby on the first floor, go down the hall that leads behind the elevators. You will see a door labeled CSEHelp. Press the doorbell button at that door and ask for Dave Wargo.
ID card access
Access to the CSE building and the various semi-public rooms within the building are controlled by card-swipe locks. Your UCSD ID card needs to be read into the lock system so that access can be granted to the appropriate rooms.
Faculty, staff and graduate students will be given access to the outside doors, the small conference rooms and the A.P.E. lab. Access to additional rooms will be provided on an as needed and approved basis.
Keys are only used for individual offices and PhD student lab offices. You must be assigned to a particular room for a key to be issued to you. If you get locked out of a room, you can contact CSEHelp or the campus police for assistance. You will need to provide a photo ID to confirm your identity when being let into a room.
