Building Access Policy

Dayton Campus

The college is open for college related activities during normal hours. During the times the college is officially closed, buildings are normally locked, and only faculty, staff and students with special permission and proper ID card are admitted. To help increase the ability of Sinclair Police to maintain a safer and more secure campus environment, the following established policy serves as a reminder for persons using the campus facilities after closed hours.

To access campus facilities when the buildings are closed:

Buildings 1-8, 10-12

Only faculty, staff, contractors and students with special permission and proper ID card are admitted. Everyone must enter through the southeast entrance of Building 7 unless you utilize an authorized swipe card.  The Building 7 entrance door is equipped with an intercom and camera monitoring system connected directly to Sinclair Police. Upon being properly identified, the electronic door lock will be activated to allow entry into the building. After entering (and before exiting) Building 7, each individual must sign in or sign out on the log located in the Sinclair Police lobby.  

Buildings 9, 13, 14, 16, 19, & 20

Only faculty, staff, contractors and students with special permission and proper ID card are admitted. Individuals who posses electronic access cards can use any card reader to enter the building. Upon entering the building, contact Sinclair Police and provide your name, location and how long you plan on working in the building. Before leaving the building, contact Sinclair Police.

Remaining in a building after the campus has closed

Staff, faculty and contractors remaining in any building after closing hours must notify Sinclair Police and indicate their location and expected time of departure.  Subsequent to the daily closing of the campus, all building exit doors and interior motion detection alarms will be activated and closely monitored.  Any violations of these alarmed areas will be documented for future reference. Students and visitors will not be authorized to remain in a closed building or gain access to a building or area after closed hours, unless prior written permission is on file or accompanied by a faculty or staff member.
