Computing Resources

The computing facilities for this department do not use social security numbers or BuckID numbers. The university considers both to be "restricted" information. Please do not, ever, include either number when communicating with the Site Staff.

The university's key/card control system does use BuckID numbers. If you want Site assistance with diagnosing and correcting a keycard access problem it may be necessary to visit the site manager with your BuckID so your number can be checked against the keycard access control list.
