Establishing a foundation for better building security

After three years, replacing thousands of card readers across over 170 buildings, the first phase of AggieAccess is complete, which means all electronic access systems on the Davis campus have been updated and centralized, improving building security and creating a foundation for expanding electronic access. 

Get ready for fall quarter

Existing electronic access systems across campus are being upgraded to AggieAccess, a more secure, consolidated entry system. Over the past year, almost 40 locations have been upgraded, with more to come as work extends into 2022.

Using AggieAccess cards and readers

As more readers are upgraded and new credentials are distributed, the AggieAccess team wants to ensure all users are able to easily and reliably get where they need to go.

“The new AggieAccess cards and readers allow us to implement an extra level of encryption to our electronic access systems,” said Jeff Rott, director of physical security systems for the UC Davis Police Department.
