Door Access

Door access is a major part of the Identification System Project.  Control panels will be converted to the new CS Gold system building-by-building beginning on March 18 and running through the end of the Fall 2013 semester.  

Temporary & Replacement Cards

To ensure safety and security on campus, buildings that have been converted to the new system will no longer accept cards issued on a temporary basis.  Therefore, beginning April 30th the ID Card office will no longer issue temporary ID cards.  If a card is reported lost or stolen, the card holder must purchase a replacement card at a cost of $23. 

William & Mary Police will issue temporary cards after hours ONLY until June 24th.  After June 24th, William & Mary Police will only issue replacement cards and the cardholder will be billed the replacement cost by the ID Office during the next business day.

Standard-issue cards will not be affected by the changes to the ID system.  You will NOT need to have your card replaced at this time.


All contractors will need personal ID cards to enter buildings on the W&M Campus.  More information about door access for contractors

Converted Buildings

The following buildings have been converted to the new ID system.  Reminder: Temporary cards and contractor company cards (those not issued to a specific person) will not work at buildings that have been converted.

As of 12/5/13, all buildings have been converted to the new system
