How to request card access to doors in the Business Building

The exterior doors as well as the doors to departmental suites in the Business Building are secured by an electronic door access system that utilizes the Penn State ID card as the entry "key."  Offices, however, will require a traditional key for access. Standard faculty and staff access includes access to the exterior doors, mail room, and conference rooms.

To request electronic access to specific additional doors in the Business Building, please see your department's administrative assistant who will submit a request using the Smeal Service Management Portal. The staff in the Human Resources office in 211 Business will update the door access system to reflect the proper access. Please note, for certain spaces such as the Trading Room, MBA Classrooms, etc, Human Resources will first contact the area responsible for the space to confirm permission to grant the access requested.  Upon receipt of any necessary approvals, access will be granted and you will be notified that your ID card has been updated.

For additional questions about access to University facilities, please review the University Access Policy (SY19).
