Locking and Unlocking of University Lecture Rooms

Unless explicit written approval has been obtained from the Office of Academic Scheduling, all University Lecture Rooms (including those with omni-locks installed) are to be kept unlocked and available for use Monday – Friday from 0700-2200 (except YUH 124 and DH).

If a University Lecture Room is locked, depending on the time of day, departments are to contact one of the following service groups to have the room unlocked:

  • Call FD&O Customer Service at (408) 924-1990 during regular business hours Monday to Friday, between 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
  • If you are not able to reach FD&O Customer Service, please call the Office of Undergraduate Education at (408) 924-2447 (between 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, closed for lunch from 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm). Please allow the office staff a 10-15 minute response time.


To improve safety, academic building doors that face the streets bordering the campus will lock at 6:15 PM M-F. Doors facing the interior of the university will remain open to 10 PM M-F. A website has been developed to provide information about building access including a map of which doors lock at 6:15 PM.  Please inform your faculty, staff and students about this website http://www.sjsu.edu/buildingaccess/.
