12.2.5. Gatehouse Security Arm Procedures

The security arm at the Peachtree Road entrance is in operation between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. daily, unless directed otherwise by the director of campus safety. The gate will be down and operating during this period and on certain holidays.

If a vehicle has a valid parking tag, and an occupant has a valid Petrel Pass, the vehicle will be freely admitted onto campus.

Between 9:30 p.m. and 2:00 a.m., if a vehicle has no permit or if the permit is out of date then the vehicle may not be allowed onto campus unless the following are accomplished:

  • Occupants of any vehicle unaccompanied by a student or staff member must show a valid photo ID or Petrel Pass. The name, license number and state, time and a reason for the visit will be recorded in the vehicle registration log. In addition, campus safety must be able to contact the student who is hosting the visitor to verify that the guest is welcome. If confirmation is not made after two attempts, the guest will be informed and visitation denied.
  • If a student is in the vehicle, he/she/they can confirm the occupants are invited guests. Students must sign-in their guests on the registration log along with their name (printed clearly), residence hall room, phone number and time.
