Card Access & Security
All staff needs to use their Stanford ID card or the Mobile Key app on their cell phone to open entrance and exterior doors as our buildings are in card access mode 24/7. Each occupant needs to scan in, we ask that you not tailgate or piggyback behind someone entering a building. In the event of a power outage or internet loss, our badge readers will be down. All staff should carry their physical Stanford ID since they may need to show it to security to enter a building.
Presentation to reader
The readers and cards have chips that need to be close enough to make a connection that triggers the lock to open.
If your badge is held too far away or at the wrong angle, the connection won’t be made. Hold your badge close to the center of the reader for best results.
Swiping your card across or near the reader will not unlock the door.
You may experience issues due to “card stacking.” Placing multiple cards with magnetic strips and RFID chips in a plastic sleeve will work against one another when trying to badge in. Keep cards in separate sleeves.
Campus Card Services
If your ID card does not have an “-E” on the back, all the upgraded card readers at SRWC won’t recognize your card. If you have an old card, please visit the Campus Card Services website for assistance.
ID Cards are issued by the ID Card Office. For more information, submit a Service Request, or call 650-498-CARD or (8-2273).
