Physical security for many of the rooms in the CSE environment is controlled by BuckID card-swipe system maintained by Computing Services. In order to maintain physical security of the CSE environment, rooms with a BuckID card reader should never be propped. Failure to maintain the physical security of any CSE room may result in loss of BuckID access to that room.
