Wurster Hall Access
Wurster Hall is open during normal school hours. After-hours access to Wurster Hall is via Cal 1 Card. Card readers are located at the exterior entries on the first and second floors. Staff in the Student Technology Center (477 Wurster Hall, south tower) coordinate card-reader access to the building and its facilities.
- After-hours access is granted via UC Berkeley's card readers, using the Cal 1 Card.
- A Cal 1 Card may be obtained in Lower Sproul Plaza in the Cal 1 Card office (180 Cesar Chavez Center).
- As access permission is given only to verified campus members, you may not email us with a request for access. A visit to 477 Wurster Hall to verify identity is required prior to being given building access.
- The access system at UC Berkeley operates using a departmental request for access combined with the Cal 1 Card identity system and the UC Berkeley police card-reader database.
- Since UC Berkeley as a whole uses this access system, there are times when others on campus may accidentally overwrite your CED permissions.
- Actual activation may take from an hour to up to three working days to process.
Rooms + Facilities Access
Staff in the Student Technology Center (477 Wurster Hall, south tower) coordinate card-reader access not only to Wurster Hall, but also to the studio floors, special rooms (like the DCRP lounge), and facilities (CAD/CAM and computer labs).
Generally speaking, the time periods between semesters are closed to student access so that we may clean facilities, refurbish furniture, re-image computers, repair equipment, etc. Access during this interim period is by departmental approval only, and may be limited. (There are only two exceptions: MUD students have ongoing access to the building, fourth-floor studio, and studio computers/printers, and Ph.D. students have ongoing access to the building, Ph.D. rooms, and printers in the Ph.D. rooms.)
Access permissions for students are semester-based; again, the only exceptions are for MUD and Ph.D. students, whose access is set by the school year (fall through summer semesters).
