What is a proximity card?

The university uses photo ID cards that include a built-in reader element. When one of these cards is placed within 2 inches of a proximity reader, identifying information is read from the card and sent to a controller which will grant or deny access to the area.

For more information or to obtain a proximity card, please see the ID Center website.
