Other Access and Door Information

  • UW Facilities CAAMS (Campus Automated Access Management System) provides a computer application for access control on the UW Seattle campus. Building Management provides local management of CAAMS doors for Magnuson Health Sciences, the Foege Building, ARCF, Health Sciences Education Building, and South Campus Center.
  • Building perimeter doors are defined as exterior doors and hallway security doors (such as those between Magnuson Health Sciences and UW Medical Center).
  • Some departments use badge readers to control entry into sensitive internal areas. Personnel needing access to these areas should contact their department Building Access Coordinator, who can request that HS Building Management add the access.
  • CAAMS doors should not be opened with a key. They are alarmed and may require UW Police response.
