UW-Green Bay Changes Building Hours and Access Policy

The new UW-Green Bay Building Hours and Access policy, OP-15-17-1 goes into effect this fall 2017 semester. This policy, developed by a working group representing the Provost Office, Public Safety and Safety Management, states that academic building hours are 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Those in the buildings before 11:00 p.m. will be allowed to remain there until midnight. For specific reasons, extended hours can be approved upon request to Public Safety. Non-academic buildings will set general hours of operation. Students must be out of buildings after hours of operation, unless working with an employee with approved after-hours access. Rare circumstances may allow Public Safety to approve unsupervised student access after-hours. Unsupervised student access to labs, studios, etc. while the buildings are open require a non-transferrable “Blue Pass” issued by the appropriate university authority. Public Safety staff will be educating those found in violation of this new policy and violations will be forwarded from Public Safety to the appropriate Dean/Director. Questions or concerns can be directed to University Safety Manager Jill Fermanich, fermanij@uwgb.edu or Chief of Police Tomas J. Kujawa, kujawat@uwgb.edu.
