The card access system allows residents to enter designated areas of their residence community with their MavCARD.

• Do not leave your MavCARD in direct sunlight or on the dash of a car.
• Do not expose to extreme heat or open flame. For example, clothes dryers or clothes irons.
• Do not machine wash.
• Do not use as an ice scraper or scraping tool.
• Do not crimp, bend, or twist card.
• Do not re-laminate.
• Do not pound with a pen or tool.
• Do not punch a slot or hole in the card.

  • Do not prop doors open.
  • Do not lend your MavCARD to someone else or borrow someone else's card.
  • Do not let someone else into the community just because that person is standing right behind you as you let yourself in — or is standing outside the door as you let yourself out. Also, when entering or exiting the community, don't allow a person to catch the door and hold it open to let himself/herself in.
  • Be alert and aware. Report strange, suspicious, or unusual behavior/events to University Security.
