Biosciences – Streatham

To access Geoffrey Pope building, BioCat Building and Living Systems Institute you will need to swipe your ID card and enter your pin number (issued by Robin Batten, Computer Development Officer, Biosciences, Exeter).  All the rooms at the Hatherly Building are locked after normal hours. Keys to the cupboards and drawers of laboratories and rooms are normally in the charge of the technician allocated to the Academic Supervisor.

Keys/security lock codes are for the use of the person to whom they are issued, and must not be loaned/passed on to others.  The issue of keys to postgraduates is a privilege and not a right and may be withdrawn if it, or use of the Biosciences facilities out of hours, is abused.  All keys issued for the Exeter campus must be returned to Mr. Tim Pithers at the end of the programme. A charge of £5 will be levied for each key not returned.

Users of all Biosciences buildings between the hours of 6.00pm and 7.30am must sign in as they enter the building, or if they remain in the building after 6.00 p.m., and sign out as they leave. The Estate Patrol is authorised to enter any of the Biosciences buildings when they are closed and to challenge occupants of the buildings for their identity and, where necessary, authorisation to be in the building at that time. The Estate Patrol may report to the Head of Biosciences any person who is in a Biosciences building after hours and who has not signed the appropriate book. The main signing-in/out books are sited as follows:
Hatherly:    Inside basement entrance
GP/BioCat Centre:      Inside entrance
Living Systems Institute:    Porter’s desk

Access to Hatherly after 6.00pm is by swiping your card at the basement entrance under the main steps. All users must ensure that, after 6.00pm on weekdays and at weekends, all building entrance doors are kept locked, and not left unlatched.

In case of difficulty where visitors request admittance after hours, telephone the Estate Patrol on 01392 723999 (Exeter campus).
