Building Access & Security
Guidelines regarding campus buildings & property



Many campus rooms and areas are protected by intrusion alarms. Before entering such areas, Police and Safety Services should be called.

Building Access

Most buildings are open from 7:00 am to 10:30 pm. Monday through Friday. Buildings are opened on as “as needed” basis on weekends and holidays. Staff and faculty with college-related business may be granted entrance by Long Beach Police to college facilities, with proper identification any day between the hours of 5:00 am and 12:00 pm. Students shall not be permitted access to district facilities after hours without direct staff supervision and a building entrance permit signed by the manager responsible for the area.

Keys and access control devices are provided to staff members by the Facilities Department, on a need-to-enter basis when approved by the appropriate supervisor. Lost keys and access control devices must be reported immediately to the supervisor and the Facilities Department. Payment for lost keys may be required. Keys and access control devices may not be loaned to other staff or to students. District safety officers will confiscate any keys in the possession of unauthorized persons. District keys may not be duplicated. District property may not be removed from District facilities without authorization. 

Building Maintenance

The campus facilities are maintained by Facilities Services and patrolled by the officers of Long Beach Police. The police officers, safety officers, and police support service liaisons regularly test the emergency phones and submit work orders for repair, recommend the trimming of shrubbery for safety reasons and conduct periodic lighting surveys. Custodians inspect their respective work areas for lights out, doors unlocked and potentially dangerous persons and report to Long Beach Police their findings. Officers report the need for replacement of lights and any other physical hazards they notice. Periodic crime prevention surveys are conducted when a crime trend occurs or upon the physical changes of office space and equipment when requested by an administrator.

College Property

No district property may be removed from the campus without expressed written permission from the department manager or area supervisor. Unauthorized removal of district property from the campus is a violation of the law and may be prosecuted by the district.
