Residence Halls to be secured 24/7 starting November 21st
Beginning on November 21st Luther College will be moving to a 24/7 secured building system within the residence halls. Over the past year the transition from a key access system to a card access system has taken place in the six primary residence halls on campus. Students are currently using their Luther ID card to gain entry into their residence hall from 10:00 pm until 8:00 am when the residence hall doors are locked. The transition to 24/7 secured buildings means the residence halls will be locked at all times and only those with approved ID cards can gain entry into the residence halls. The primary reason for the change is to provide Luther students with increased security within their residence hall.
Faculty and staff that use the Farwell elevator for parking purposes will need to have their Luther ID card activated to gain access to Farwell Hall since the building will be locked at all times beginning at Thanksgiving break. The process for requesting card access is the same as requests for keys. Requests must be made through program directors or department heads using the Luther Facilities work request on-line program at fixit.luther.edu Card activation will take two business days to complete. Business hours for Farwell access are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The West door to Larsen Hall will remain open during office hours, 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. for access to the Center for Global Learning and International Admissions office and the classroom located in the hall. If you have any questions concerning the 24/7 secured building system please contact Rich Tennison at #1372 or email@example.com.
