Fill out the ATLAS Card Access Form and under the "Affiliation" section, check off the box(es) that apply to you and we will process your request. Note: that card access will be permanently revoked for individuals who intentionally request access to building spaces they are not permitted to use. Here's a helpful breakdown:
