Security Access Specifications for Forsythe Hall

(Appendix A to Service Description document)

Secure Access to Forsythe Hall Data Centers

All individuals accessing the Forsythe Hall data centers are required to keep their Stanford University ID Card, pre-assigned Temporary Access Card or assigned Forsythe Hall Day Pass clearly visible at all times while in the computer rooms.

Individuals, including guests, who do not have a Stanford University Identification Card or pre-assigned Temporary Access Card must have a pre-approved access request  and surrender a valid picture ID to gain access to the computer room.  A Technical Facilities staff member will assign the visitor a Day Pass access card, which must be visibly worn at all times while in the computer rooms. Visitor passes are only valid for one day.  

ITOC manages access to Forsythe Hall during (after 5pm, before 8am), weekends and holidays.  A courtesy phone is located at the main entrance and is set to ring directly to ITOC should access to the building and/or computing rooms be necessary. The same protocol mentioned above will apply.

If you have any questions, please submit a help ticket via ServiceNow. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
