they cannot leave through the card reading door with a card unless they entered that

doors (panic bar will unlock from the inside) making sure that it locks behind them.
• Security card locks affect the main building only. Access to the print shop, warehouse
and parking compound will operate as normal.
• The card is to be used only by the individual to whom it was issued. Employees should
not loan cards to other individuals. If someone who does not have a card needs in
the building after hours, arrangements can be made through the Physical Plant.
