Contractors or vendors are individuals who will need access to Washington University buildings while employed for an outside company such as WFF, Bon Appetit, etc. In order to receive a valid contractor ID card, each contractor will need a signed Contractor-Vendor ID Card Request form from a University Sponsor.
The card access required by the individual contractor should be filled out on the Contractor-Vendor ID Card Request form. Once this is complete, a CCS associate will send this request to the Office of Card Access & Electronic Security to be added.
For further inquiries regarding card access, please contact Card Access & Electronic Security directly. The Campus Card Services cannot add, remove, or alter access without approval from Card Access.
Many contractor require access to Standalone locks and will need to be encoded in-person.
New Contractors that will require encoding need to email their Contractor-Vendor ID Card Request form ahead of time to Campus Card Services. Emailing ahead of time allows your request to be sent and processed by Card Access. If this is following, you’ll be able to receive your ID card WITH encoding together, saving you a future trip.
An active ID Card cannot be granted to a contractor unless this form is correctly filled out, signed by the individual, and signed by a University Sponsor.
