Your CrimsonCard gives you access to assigned areas on all IU campuses, including office buildings and student residence halls. While access resides on the CrimsonCard, it is controlled by each building's designated facilities manager.
If you are in need of access to a building, ask your supervisor or advisor for the contact information of the building coordinator.
Touch, Hold & Go Access – Beginning on or around Oct. 15, 2019. Some Indiana University-owned buildings and areas still use proximity access readers which allow users to wave their CrimsonCard near the reader. Beginning on or around October 15, 2019, Indiana University-owned buildings will transition to Touch, Hold & Go Access.
Touch, Hold, & Go Access requires CrimsonCard holders to physically touch the center of the access reader with their CrimsonCard and hold it on the reader until the green light flashes, indicating access is granted. Removing the CrimsonCard from your holder/wallet may be needed to ensure access is granted.
