Restricted Access – Academic and Administrative Buildings

Beginning on Thursday (3/19), all Columbus campus academic and administrative buildings will change to restricted access by having exterior doors locked. We are taking these additional steps to support the safety and security of the university community as well as the requirement that all employees who can do so work from home. The Department of Public Safety will perform additional building checks during this time.

In the limited circumstances that your work requires you to access a locked facility, please utilize keycard access entrances, if available. For locked buildings, packages and deliveries from Ohio State’s Stores and Receiving will be temporarily held. Orders from outside vendors, including those being delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, will be returned unless alternate arrangements are made by the recipient.

Anyone with questions regarding work arrangements should contact their dean, academic advisor, senior leader or manager. All questions about facility maintenance or access should be directed to Service2Facilities by calling 614-292-4357.
