Building & Library Access
Building & Library Access for Law Faculty & Law Students
Your UC ID (Bearcat Card) will allow you access to the building and the Law Library 24/7. If you forget your UC ID during regular business hours (weekdays, 8:00am -- 5:00pm) enter through the Clifton Avenue doors.
If you forget your UC ID after-business-hours or on the weekend use the sliding glass doors at the back of the building where a call button has been installed with voice and video links to the Library Circulation Desk. This service is only available during hours that the Law Library is open. See Library Hours for a schedule of open hours.
To enter the Library when it is closed, swipe your ID card through the key-card reader mounted outside the library entrance located across from classroom 302. Exit after-hours through that same door.
Reporting Unauthorized Persons & Emergencies
To report unauthorized persons in the Law Library after hours, or to report any personal or facility-related emergency, please call UC Public Safety at 556-1111. Report any problem that you experience with the key-card access function of your I.D. card to Susan Boland, Associate Director of Public & Research Services.

Preferred login for UC. First time users must download the VPN software. Login using your 6+2 and Central Login password.
New: On August 11, 2014, the SSL VPN will be modified to so that the Junos Pulse client is presented for download. Junos Pulse will become the default SSL VPN client for new SSL VPN users. If you already have the “Network Connect” client installed you will still be able to connect using the “Network Connect” client.
