Building and Facilities Care Guidelines

Security & Facility Care Guidelines

[obtain codes from the Office of Academic Affairs]

Access to the Mudd Building, the Computer Lab, TV Lounge, D’Autremont & the PSR Chapel is provided as a PSR community benefit. The Mudd Computer Lab, Lounge, and Mudd 104 are all wireless. The Mudd 104 study room is available on a first come first serve basis when no class is scheduled. To reserve rooms such as rooms in Mudd and the PSR Chapel, go to and be sure to check room availability before submitting your request. In order to ensure that the PSR community enjoys that intended benefit, it is necessary for all users to participate in observing a few security and facility care guidelines.

  • All facility users must acquire the necessary codes from the Academic Affairs Office (student/PSR-affiliation I.D. must be presented at the time the code requested is made)
  • All users must sign an “Accountability Covenant” indicating agreements to NOT SHARE the codes with others.
  • Access to codes should NOT BE SHARED WITH ANYONE ELSE (this is redundant, but absolutely bears repeating).
  • Users are also asked not to admit person who have “left their codes at home” and/or cannot present adequate identification to show they are authorized users of the facilities.
  • Users are asked to ensure that the facility door has closed completely upon leaving the building.
  • PSR Chapel: The code numbers to the chapel door near the outside bathroom maybe used when the doors are looked before 8 am and after 5 pm, Monday to Friday. If the chapel has been officially reserved, it is not available. Otherwise, it may be reserved on a first come first serve basis through
