Keys & ID Card Access
Requests for Keys
CSAIL personnel can obtain keys for offices, research areas, desks and filing cabinets by contacting CSAIL HR at CSAIL Headquarters (32-369A). You should list the appropriate room or key number when requesting keys. Please note that your supervisor must approve all requests.
While some key requests may be filled immediately, a processing time of one week is typical. All keys are non-transferable: you must return them to CSAIL Headquarters upon termination or transfer.
To protect personal and laboratory property, lock unoccupied rooms at all times. Property loss should be reported immediately to MIT Campus Police (x3-1212), followed by TIG. (firstname.lastname@example.org
ID Card Access
Obtaining an MIT ID card
CSAIL research space is generally accessible from Monday 9:00 a.m. to Friday 5:00 p.m. Most doors leading into CSAIL research space are locked outside of these hours. This includes doors leading into office space from the fire stairwells, elevator lobby doors and neighborhood doors. These doors have proximity card readers and can be unlocked by enabled MIT ID Cards.
To have your card enabled, email Jillian Auerbach email@example.com
for CSAIL ID Card Access.
Access will only be given to faculty, staff and visitors with a valid CSAIL appointment and students working with CSAIL faculty and staff.
Other neighborhood doors with regular key locks are also locked in the evening. In most cases, restrooms are outside the neighborhood areas, so don't forget your keys and ID card after hours!
