Request Electronic Door Access

Request Access

Faculty and Staff

To request access to a door, you must complete the 105-156 form.

You can only request access to one door per form unless you need access to all doors on a campus, in which case you can select Campus Master.

You will need to know the card reader code on the door you are requesting. The code is located on the top of the card reader. You only need the first four or five numbers.

All forms go through an approval process. Forms are approved as follows:

  1. Requestor's Supervisor
  2. Dean (if applicable)
  3. Director of Campus Operations of campus where the door is located.
  4. Additional approval required if the request is for after hours access (police approval required).
  5. Central NOVACard will receive notification after all required approvals are given and will grant access accordingly.


Some students will require access to practice rooms and or classrooms that have readers or Room Reservations.

  • The Dean or Assistant Dean should email the list of students to NOVACard office. The list must include the student id, the room # and card reader code # on the wall next to the door access.
  • Deans/Asst. Deans will also need to send NOVACard an updated student list after the drop/add period of each semester. Any student not on the final list will have the access deleted.
