Card Access Control System

St. Lawrence University utilizes a card access control system, allowing students access to all residence halls securely. Students will have access to their residence hall 24 hours a day and all other residence halls from 7 am – 11 pm.


By showing ID cards within 1-2 inches of an electronic reader at the doors of each residence hall, students are able to enter immediately.

The card holder must have access rights to that building or doors will not unlock. The main entrances of the residence halls have a yellow/red emergency phone. The emergency phones are equipped with a key pad to dial on campus phone number and a red panic button that dials Safety & Security directly.
