Building and Laboratory Access Guidelines

Everyone in the following categories will need to apply for MNTL building access:

  • Graduate and Undergraduate Researchers
  • Postdoctoral Research Associates
  • Visiting Scholars
  • Faculty and Staff housed within MNTL

Most of the common lab areas, as well as the building itself, are accessed with a proximity i-card. Offices and individual faculty labs are typically accessed with a cylinder key. Requests for either require submission of the on-line MNTL Keycard Request Form. If cylinder key(s) are needed please print out a Cylinder Key Request Form and submit it to the MNTL Business Office in Room 2104 MNTL after you have completed the Building Safety Training. Please see the Building Access Procedure page for additional requirements.

Note: No cylinder keys will be distributed without prior issuance of a proximity i-card.

There is an $8.50 fee required for obtaining a proximity i-card. There is a $25 deposit required for each cylinder key as of February 1, 2013.

Send e-mail to or call 217-333-3097 if you have additional questions regarding building access.
