Staff Security Responsibilities

You must never allow access through a Cardax controlled door to anyone you do not recognise as a WIBR member of staff or student.

This may occur due to 'tail gating' i.e. when you hold open a door for someone following you.

If you do not recognise the person ask them to return to Security/ Reception at the front entrance or escort them to the WIBR person they wish to see having first checked their UCL ID or Visitors Pass.

Security ext: 46888

Never leave any valuables unattended or unsecured even in locked offices e.g. mobile phones, wallets, purses, laptops, etc. Please lock away in desk drawers or lockers. Also, you can contact IT Support for advice on securing computer equipment.
