Security Key / ID Access
The University of South Florida Physical Plant division houses the USF Facilities Access Shop. Information regarding the request, transfer and return of USF issued keys can be found by contacting them. College of Arts & Sciences office managers or their designate can request keys for their departmental personnel through the USF Building Access Control System. The person for whom the key was requested will receive a notification via campus mail or email to pick up their key at the USF Facilities Access Shop. That person must sign for their key when they pick it up, and they must show their ID card at that time. They cannot send someone to pick up the key.
For the most part, the College of Arts & Sciences has switched Tampa Campus buildings from exterior door locks to ID Card Access. Buildings will remain unlocked during normal business and academic calendar hours (approx. 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., Monday - Friday) but will be under card access control during the off hours. To be granted ID card access for your building(s), please contact your departmental office manager, and they will give you access permission.
