Building Access Policy

Effective March 18, 2020 and until further notice, the law building and law clinic building are locked at all times and access is limited to card swipe or key only.

The Law Clinic is accepting clients by appointment only.

In an effort to increase safety and security the School of Law has implemented the following procedures:


  • Law school students, faculty, and staff can access the law school building at any time using their iCard at the north door (second floor) or at the east south patio door (first floor) (i.e., automatic doors).
    • Only individuals who use their iCard to gain access should be in the building after hours.
    • iCard access is gained by swiping the card and entering the last four digits of your social security number (international students should enter the month and day of their birth (mmdd)).
    • Do NOT ask a custodian to let you in.
    • Do NOT contact the Facilities or Police Department to let you in.
    • No iCard = no access.
    • Do not prop open doors.
  • The automatic doors unlock and lock at the times indicated below under the "Final Lockup" column.
  • On Saturday and Sunday the law school building can be entered only through the automatic doors.
  • The public is welcome to use the law library during normal hours but must enter the building prior to the "Final Lockup" times indicated below.
  • Persons involved in events taking place outside of normal law school hours, but within library operating hours, are responsible for providing notice to the reference librarian at the beginning and end of the event to enable unlocking and locking of the facilities.

Contact Barbara Ginzburg at or (785) 670-1087 to arrange for a modified schedule to the doors that unlock/lock automatically.
