What if my KSU ID card does not unlock doors I've been given access to?
1) make sure you have updated your card at a hotspot (outside any Marietta campus building.
This must be done every few days.
2) If updating does not solve the problem, contact Card Services (email@example.com) to see if they can troubleshoot. You may need to have it re-synched.

In extraordinary circumstances, copy assistance can be provided but only if we have the faculty member’s ID card in hand. Copies must be charged to the faculty member’s home department, and the Faculty Support Office personnel cannot do that without the faculty member’s ID.
Where can I meet with students on an individual basis?
The small conference rooms (A,B,C) within the J305 suite are primarily designed for the purpose of student conferences with faculty. When possible, please use the schedule sheets outside the doors or contact Faculty Support Office personnel to reserve space in advance. If a room is available, feel free to use it without an advanced reservation, but please mark such on the schedule sheet (we need to track usage to show how – and how much – we are using our spaces).
