Buildings on CWU-Ellensburg Campus Now Locked/Unlocked on Automated Schedule

All academic building entryways on the Ellensburg campus are now being locked/unlocked on an automated schedule that is generated by Facilities Management. A link to current building hours and contacts can be found on the facilities building schedule webpage

Changes to this schedule are coordinated by Associate Vice President Shane Scott. Please submit quarterly schedule changes to six weeks prior to the start of the quarter.

Generally, most academic buildings will be unlocked during regular business and academic hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and will be adjusted to accommodate academic courses with scheduled meeting times. More detailed information can be found in the Facility Use Procedures webpage.

This change also impacts events that are scheduled in academic buildings. Here are the main changes: 

  • Facilities will only unlock the building for a scheduled event that has been booked through the SURC Scheduling Center.
  • When scheduling events outside of regular building hours, please remember to include pre-event time in your reservation to ensure access to the building prior to the event.
  • More detailed procedures for event Scheduling can be found on the CWU Facilities webpage.
