TAMIU is deploying a card access system throughout multiple locations on campus. The system utilizes the magnetic stripe on the TAMIU OneCard (employee/student identification card).

When the buildings with exterior card access are closed to the public, you will need your TAMIU OneCard to gain entry. Areas equipped with card access that require a higher level of security will remain locked at all times and require card swipe.
