Building Access

500 U

Access to the exterior doors and elevators at the Rehabilitation Sciences Building is controlled by an electronic security system. If you have problems with your FOB or you lose it, please contact the sector receptionist at:

FOBs are issued at the start of each academic year by the RSI office and returned upon graduation of the program. There will be a fee of $15 if a FOB is lost. In addition, your FOB allows access to RSI specific rooms as well as labs in which students have an affiliation. Labs are assigned by request of a Faculty member and/or Business Manager of the respective department.

For security purposes, please do not prop open the stairwell doors, as the silent alarm will disengage during non-business hours. Several break-ins have occurred over the last years and valuable equipment has been stolen. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you give or lend your U of T student card or key FOB to another person. If you notice a suspicious person wandering in or out of any departmental rooms, immediately alert one of the faculty or staff. Campus police for emergencies and/or off-hours can be reached at: (416) 978-2222.

After-hours Access

The building is open at 8:00 a.m. and locked at 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students have access to the elevators and required floors on weekends using their access key FOBs. Your key FOB will provide access to the building. If you have problems with your FOB, please contact the sector receptionist at
