As has been announced on the Construction Bulletin Board near the dining room entrance for the past several months, Phase 2 of our security measures is nearing completion. In the near future (we will first be alerted by email and letters in our mailboxes), you will need a white security card not just to get into the building but also to ride elevators higher than the 1st Floor. The M-wing elevator does not yet require any use of a security card to go to any floors, but due to a programming error, the F-wing and R-wing elevators are already requiring you to use your card before pushing a button for floor 2, 3, 4, or 5."
Regarding stairwells – the new security card readers in the M, C, and R wing stairwells have not yet been activated. You may simply open the doors on any floor without first swiping your security card even though the card reader will then beep.
People "staying at the Knoll" are all issued with security cards. It is only visitors, who are not staying at the Knoll, who will either need to enter via the Rotunda door or phone security from the phone inside the sliding glass doors
