Several locks at S&T are controlled electronically and operate with the S&T MinerCard. Electronic locks provide greater security & control than physical keys and provide a greater level of convenience for campus users requiring more specific access needs.
First, check your card version to make sure that you have the correct version. If you have the Miner Card 2.0 version and think your card should work on a specific door, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We're here to help, and we try to respond to all requests within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.
S&T has two kinds of access: manual and synchronized. Manual access is granted on a case by case basis and requires access coordinator approval. Synchronized access is connected to campus data; when your campus data updates, so does your access.
To request access to a room with electronic access, reach out to your access coordinator or email email@example.com. Once your access coordinator approves the request, access is typically granted within 48 hours.
Some locks require a card + PIN to be accessed. Visit the PIN Application to create or reset your PIN.
