Help Files: Cardkey

1. Do I need to get a cardkey??

The 1111 Etch lab is open daily from 8AM-6PM. Anyone who wishes to have access to the labs outside of these hours will need to get cardkey access.

You can apply now and get cardkey access within a few days.

2. What is the cost?

Due to theft issues, we are not going to issue permanent cardkeys. Rather, you will need to renew it every semester/year. The cost is $5/semester.

3. What rooms will I get access to when I get a cardkey?

When you get a cardkey, you will have access to
   a. Etcheverry Hall building door
   b. 1111 Etcheverry

4. How do I get one?

Cardkey requests are only done online, via our Account Management Tool.
Only people with a valid CalnetID AND a CARS account or a valid chartstring can apply. If you need access to other rooms in the building, you need to see the key manager in your department.

5. What do I need to get a cardkey?

You will need to have a valid CalnetID which has a 5 digit number at the lower right hand corner in the back.

If you do not have such a number, you need to go to the Cal Photo ID office to get a new card. Without this number, we cannot program your card to have access
