Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get access to the building after-hours?

The College of Medicine has UA CatCard readers at 3 main entrances for keyless access to Building 201. The three entrances are: COM Plaza Deck South Entry, Medical Bookstore West Entry, and First Floor South Stairwell Entry (by Hippocrates Plaza). These doors are unlocked during regular business hours Monday-Friday 6:00 AM - 6:00 PM excluding holidays and university closure days.

For access outside of these hours your CatCard will have to be programmed following the procedures on this Procedure for Keyless Entry Access [PDF}document. Please allow 24 - 48 hours for card to be activated.

How do I request additional space?

All requests for additional space must be made by a department head or center director in memo form describing specific needs and submitted to the Sr. Director of Operations, AHSC.

  • Academic units will only be considered for additional space if they demonstrate a need for the space and if they meet or exceed established benchmarks.

  • Requests for additional space will result in the on-site audit of existing departmental/center space.

  • Space requests will be met based upon space availability, timing and how the request fits within the context of the AHSC current space inventory and strategic goals and initiatives of the Arizona Health Science Center

  • Recruiting space will generally come from within the academic unit’s existing space.  Should additional space be required, it will be assigned at the discretion of the Sr. Vice President for Health Sciences.
