Campus Access Control Project Update

The Department of Public Safety, in partnership with Architecture and Engineering Services, Facilities Operations and Maintenance , Office of Information Technology, and the Idaho Department of Public Works, has engaged in a project to replace the existing electronic door access software system campus-wide.

As part of this project, all existing proprietary door controller hardware will be replaced with hardware that is non-proprietary so that the university may more easily change or update access control systems when needs arise.

While the project is progressing, to reduce costs the university will place a moratorium on requests for new electronic access door installations until the software changeover has been successfully completed.

Currently, the project involves preparing the data migration from the old software system to the new system. It is expected that the door hardware replacement will begin in May 2018 after spring commencement, and is anticipated to conclude sometime in the fall 2018 semester.

This work will be conducted as efficiently as possible in order to minimize any interruptions to campus, and we appreciate your patience while the project progresses. For questions or concerns please contact Aaron Culver, or (208) 426-4313.
