Beginning Monday, August 16, 2021, UCR campus building locations will return to normal pre-pandemic unlocking and locking schedules. This universal date serves to assist the campus community and Facilities Services (FS) with a synchronized building access date as organizations prepare for the return of in-person services on September 1.


In addition to providing regular weekday building access, Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Facilities Services will confirm all buildings previously unoccupied will have extended airflow throughout each building, starting air handler systems two hours prior to normal building occupancy hours and turning off an hour after building occupancy hours. As fall quarter nears, all buildings will return to traditional unlocking/locking hours to support scheduled after-hours classes and business. Facilities Services will continue to partner with UCPD to ensure the safety of lightly occupied buildings. 


If your organizational leadership has specific safety access concern due to known occupancy delay for a particular building, please email Loretta Vandivier at or the Facilities Services front desk at and they will partner with you to address any date adjustment necessary.
