Foege: Secured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

*UW Husky Cards automatically provide 24/7 access to the Health Sciences Building, South Campus Center, and South Foege perimeter. No request is necessary.


CAAMS (Campus Automated Access Management System) is a computer controlled system used throughout the University campus that locks and unlocks doors. Building Management has control of CAAMS exterior building, loading dock, and hallway security doors for Health Sciences, the Foege Building, ARCF, and South Campus Center.

Perimeter / Hallway Security Doors

Building perimeter doors are defined as exterior doors and hallway security doors (such as those between Health Sciences and the UW Medical Center, near the Health Sciences Library, and in the I-wing Rotunda).

Internal CAAMS Doors

Some departments within Health Sciences / Foege use access cards to control entry into sensitive areas. Personnel needing access to these areas should contact their own departmental Building Access Coordinator (BAC), who can request that HS Building Management add the access.

Loading Dock Doors

Loading dock doors are open during the same hours as other exterior doors.


CAAMS doors should not be opened with a key. They are alarmed and may require UW Police response.
