New Automated Building Access Control System
The installation phase of a new automated building access control system on the Providence Campus began last week and will continue for the next few months. This project is critical to protecting our campus infrastructure by providing building access only to members of the JWU community using their JWU ID. Your existing JWU ID has been programmed to work in the new system.

The goal is to complete the work with as little disruption as possible. We appreciate your patience as this important equipment vastly contributes to the security of our campus.

For questions about this project, please contact Director LeRoy V. Rose Jr at 401-598-2946 or lrosejr@jwu.edu. For routine building access control issues email accesscontrol.pvd@jwu.edu or call Campus Safety & Security at 401-598-1103.
