Building access

The holiday period provides an opportunity for a number of necessary maintenance tasks requiring minor power outages. These outages, combined with the university’s energy conservation program, mean the heating and ventilation systems will be operating at minimal levels that result in very cool temperatures and therefore are not well-suited for prolonged work.

If there is a need to enter a building during the mid-year break closure period, your access control will be consistent with other holiday closures. Employee OneCards are already programmed for holiday access on an as-needed basis.

If you require access to Ryerson buildings during holidays or mid-year break closures, contact your manager or department administrator who can help confirm your authorization level and make adjustments if necessary.

Please contact Security at 416-979-5040 or security@ryerson.ca if you wish to enter alarmed areas so that system schedules can be adjusted accordingly.
