7/29/20 Update: Core Access

Please follow this link to the form you will need to get Staff/Faculty/Grad/Temp/Vendor card swipe access to the HSRF building and HSRF 303.

*Note* You will need to put the date of your VOSHA CoVid19 training on this form in the table and you will need your PeopleSoft (not Net) ID, and the signature of your department chair or college dean.

If you only need access to HSRF 303, digitally fill out the form and email to Julie.Dragon@med.uvm.edu

 

If you are requesting access to HSRF as well as access to HSRF 303, follow these steps:

1) Digitally complete the form

2) Obtain appropriate signatures from your department

3) Once signed off by your department, email the form to Julie Dragon (Julie.Dragon@med.uvm.edu), NOT directly to CatCard or the Lock Shop

 

 
 

Please send this form to Julie Dragon (julie.dragon@med.uvm.edu), NOT directly to CatCard or the Lock Shop.
