Card access validation in progress
Brandon University is moving towards a secure site that will require all faculty, staff, and affiliate employees (bookstore, daycare, BUSU etc) to have a valid key fob / card to access the Brandon University Buildings. Data Integrity of our door access system is a critical exercise to ensure all team members have the building and property access they require. Physical Plant has actively been working with all departments and faculties over the last couple of weeks to validate key cards, fobs and student ID cards. This card validation process is for the Brandon site only, our Winnipeg RICE building site access has already been completed.
We have discovered some inconsistencies in our data base and will require all team members to verify their current card / key fob via a live recorded door scan. Our Physical Plant representative Christine Hearn will be at various campus buildings as of Friday Oct 8th, 2021. The schedule noted below will ensure we are able to meet all team members without creating too much disruption to your day. Please ensure you are able to make every attempt possible to scan your card prior to Oct 15th ,2021.
If you are unable to make any of the below times, we ask that you communicate with Physical Plant Physical_Plant@brandonu.ca and advise us of your last door swipe – include the door you entered and the exact time you swiped. We will do our best to validate your card – worst case scenario is you will have to pop over to Physical Plant during our operating hours Monday to a Friday 8am – 4pm for immediate assistance.

It’s fast and easy to meet us at one of the doors above. However, if you are unable to scan your card in your building during any of the times above, you can scan your card by any card reader on campus and the email Physical_Plant@brandonu.ca with the date and time (as exact as possible please) when you scanned it, as well as which building and door you scanned it at.
We appreciate everyone’s support and advance thanks for your participation in this endeavour. Our goal is to have all staff and faculty cards verified no later than Friday, October 15th .
