Access to University owned and controlled buildings and grounds is a privilege that is extended to students, faculty, staff, guests and affiliates.
By the very nature of its location, landscape design, and exterior perimeter boundaries, the University promotes an open and welcoming environment. However, the University reserves the right to apply appropriate limitations (as needed) in order to ensure the safety and well being of our community.
Except for times when the University is officially closed, most campus facilities are open during the time when classes are in session or by special arrangement. Presently the majority of University facilities are controlled by manual key access.
Authorization for use of campus facilities and premises must be obtained in advance, and different facilities/rooms must be reserved through designated authorities. The Office of Conference Services can provide direction and information in this area; please contact (202) 884-9136 for additional information regarding space.
Note: As a matter of security, DPS encourages authorized faculty and staff who are working in their offices outside of normal business hours or during times when the University is officially closed to contact DPS Communications Center at 9111 upon entering and leaving the campus.
