The Catholic University of America

Electronic Door Locks

The majority of the university’s digital presentation rooms are equipped with electronic door locks.  All keypads are currently programmed to remain permanently unlocked, and room access is now managed by the Department of Public Safety.  

If you need to purchase a door lock, you will need to reach out to the Department of Public Safety that can send you a quote and install this for you. If you have an old lock that Technology Services supported and was installed prior to 2013, Stanley-the company that created these locks, has stated they no longer support this funcunality and a new lock will need to be purchased. 

If you encounter a locked classroom that is preventing a class or event please call 202-319-5111, an officer will be dispatched to grant access.
