Many of the lights in the MSU Denver buildings are activated by motion detection. If your overhead lights are turning off prematurely, locate the sensor in the room and ensure that its range is not obstructed by any objects. Please note that some overhead lights are also programmed to a set schedule. If you feel that the overhead lights in your office or work area are set to an incorrect schedule, please submit a work order and our team will help to find a solution.
All access requests for the MSU Denver community (student employees, faculty, and staff) must be approved by the Office of Facilities Planning, however we do not directly encode ID cards or make physical keys. To gain building access, please have your office manager or designated signing authority update your departmental key matrix and e-mail a request to email@example.com If you get locked out of your room or office give us a call and we are happy to unlock that room for you.
