To get into the Engineering Building after hours, and to get into the MCECS computing labs, you will need a Proximity Card. The Proximity Card, also called a Mag Card or a Key Card is different from your PSUOne card that serves as a debt/credit card.
To get a Proximity Card, take $12 and a "valid government issued photo ID" to the ID Services Window in the Lobby of Neuberger Hall. Hours of operation are listed on the ID Services web page.
A page on the CAT web site describes how to use your Proximity Card to get into labs. Please heed the discussion of security on that page. In particular note
Obviously, propping doors open for any reason is unacceptable and defeats the security we've put in place. It will also set off an alarm notifying security officers on duty. Doing this could result in the loss of your privileges.
Having a proximity card does not grant you access to all of the labs in MCECS.
