Photo ID Badge Update

March will be the last month that an employee’s ID expiration date will be extended for one year from the current date on the badge. Employees with an expiration date in April or beyond will now be receiving email reminders to renew their ID 4 weeks prior to the expiration date, and as needed again 1 week prior to the expiration date.

To help accommodate renewals the photo ID badge window LG041, in the upper campus at the Main building near the Public Safety office, will be reopening on Tuesday, March 23 at the following times (excluding state holidays): Tuesdays 6:30 to 9:30 a.m., Wednesdays 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Thursdays 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Individual walk-ups are welcome. Please follow social distancing protocols.

Photo ID badges will continue to be available in the lower campus, by appointment at the Administrative Services Building, 3rd Floor, Room D3500, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To schedule an appointment, please see the contact information below.

Garage 1 COVID-19 Testing

Approximately 75 parking spaces on level 2 of Garage 1 are now blocked off for the COVID-19 drive-through testing area.

During Testing Hours:

  • All traffic entering the Garage 1, level 2 entrance will be limited to COVID-19 testing, ambulances and oversize/wheelchair vans.
  • All patient traffic for clinical appointments in the lower campus will use the Garage 1, level 1 entrance and exit.
  • Staff, students, and residents should plan to use the level 6, rooftop entrance and exit of the garage, and park on the upper levels 4 through 6, while avoiding the use of patient parking areas. Parking operations and Public Safety will monitor the level 6 traffic flow and raise the gates as needed.

The testing hours range from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and may vary based on the number of daily appointments. If the ‘COVID-19 Testing’ signs are displayed on the campus roads, testing is underway.
