When are the exterior entrance doors to Bass, Burton, Ford, McConnell, or Sabin-Reed open?

While the campus is in Green Mode, exterior doors for these buildings are open and unlocked 7:00am-6:00pm M-F excluding campus holidays. The list of observed campus holidays are updated annually and posted on the HR website under the Benefited Leaves section.

Div-3 faculty and staff automatically have 24/7 access to exterior doors via their OneCard. As with most academic buildings, all Smith students have access until 11pm on weeknights, and 8am-10pm on weekends.

What if we need regular access outside of these open hours? What about keys or card access to interior spaces?

What if I need to request access for an event in these buildings that includes guests who are not part of the Smith Community?
