Key Control and Warrior Access Card (WAC) Regulations
Building Access and Key Control Services is a part of the Department of Public Safety at Texas A&M University-Central Texas (TAMUCT). All Keys are state property and should be protected with the same consideration. The TAMUCT key system must be protected as any other expensive state property. Stringent key control accomplishes this. Careful consideration should be given to every key requested. Our goal is to establish a secure campus environment and ensure accountability for access to any building, room, or facility. In order to better serve you, we invite you to come by and offer suggestions or comments on building access at TAMUCT.

In case of emergencies (e.g. urgent maintenance, fire, etc.), the University Police Department and Facilities Management may need to enter a secured campus facility. Once the emergency is addressed, every reasonable effort will be made to contact the individual responsible for the area entered so as to advise him/her of the need to access their facility.
University Police will email each department head or his/her designee once a year to request updated information relative to emergency contact information should University Police need to contact someone in a specific department. Department heads are strongly encouraged to provide the University Police Department with emergency notification information and to regularly update the information on file in the event contact needs to be made during emergencies. Notification will be made to the department head or other person whose name is on file as an emergency contact for the department when emergency access to an area is required.
