E-identification application provides automatic access to certain points with your smart card, once you are authorized. There is no commercial relationship in this application area.
In METU, electronic identification applications are used at campus , building and PC room entrances. At those points, holding up your card just a few centimeters to the card readers with the METU emblem should suffice. If there is no authorization clash or no physical problems with the card, the reader will "beep" and the gate/door will open up.
Electronic identification application are used in the following places in METU:
Entry to Buildings:
- Central Laboratory
- Civil Engineering A Bldg.
- Chemistry Dept.
- Industrial Engineering
- Faculty of Architecture
- Mathematics Bldg.
- Mechanical Engineering D Bldg
- Molekuler Biology and Biotechnology Research Center
- The Computer Center
- The Physics Dept
- The Econ. And Man. Faculty, A Bldg.
The policies about access to buildings, entry authorization, date and time of system turn on, are decided upon by the unit's or department's administrative officers. While some department or unit permits entry for their own personnel only, others may allow student access as well. Each unit can have its own running policy for the card entry system.
The units, in general, have the tendency to define the system to be in operation between 19:00-07:00 hours during weekdays and all day during the weekends and official holidays.
Entry to PC rooms
- The CC PC room at dormitory 1, 2, 9 and 19
- The CC PC room at İsa Demiray, Faika Demiray, Refika Aksoy dormitory
- The CC PC room at Mechanical Engineering, Social Sciences, Physics
All the academic and administrative staff and the students in METU have entry and exit authorization to the PC rooms. Card access system is always active at the times the rooms are open without any time restrictions.
All the academic and administrative staff and those students with a car sticker are authorized to pass through campus gates. The barrier access system is in operation after working hours, at the weekends, and during official holidays.
At the gate barrier holding up your card just a few centimeters to the card readers with the METU emblem should suffice. If there is no authorization clash or no physical problems with the card, the reader will "beep" and the barrier will open up. After passage the detectors located at the exit will immediately lower down the barrier.
For this reason, when the vehicle in front passes do not try to pass without having the card reader read your card, even if the barrier is open at the time.
