Electronic Access

Card Swipe

Important Notes: Card Activation

This room is equipped with electronic access (a card-swipe lock). The electronic mechanism locks and unlocks with a swipe of an authorized URI ID card.

To unlock the door, swipe the ID card with the magnetic strip inside the sliding mechanism, and your picture facing to the left as shown in the picture at the right. To lock the door, repeat this process.

  • A steady green light indicates the door is unlocked.
  • A red light indicates the door is locked.

Faculty assigned to teach in classrooms with electronic access should be automatically entered prior to the start of the semester, or 24 hours before a special event. To be safe, be sure to test your card at least 1 business day prior to your first class meeting.

If your card does not work, contact:

Facilities Services Access Control Office
phone: 874- 4577

Internet Access


Wired Connection

Each room has at least one active ethernet port for use with the internet.
The port will be marked with a yellow dot.
There should be an ethernet cable in the rack drawer to use with the port.
If you find one is missing, please call Classroom Media Assistance at 874-4278.

Wireless Access

If you are unable to get online using the wired port, or if you prefer, all rooms also have wireless internet access.
If you have not used wireless access in the past, please be sure to test out your laptop before class starts.
Some manufacturers have special programs or settings that control wireless, or your machine may have a physical button that needs to be selected.

If you have never used your laptop on the URI network, you will be asked to download and install and electronic policy key. You probably don't want to do this during class time as it can be time consuming, so connect your laptop in your office first and get this step out of the way.

To authenticate with the policy site:
- Use your URI eCampus username
- With your Sakai/wireless password.

If you don't remember this password, please call the URI Help Desk at 401-874-4357.

Digital Media Switcher

The Switcher controls both the signal from media equipment to the projector, and the functions of the DVD player.


  • The projector will be turned on when you select your source, however, you must turn the projector off when done by using the "System Off" button located on the switcher (near the volume knob).
  • The warm-up cycle time for the projector can take as much as 2 minutes to start up and 10 seconds for the light on the projector to start flashing after a source is selected.
  • Hold the "System Off" button for 2-seconds to turn off the projector.
  • When the projector is completely off, the light above the button will become red. This may take 10 seconds.
  • Any attempt to power OFF within the 2 minute Start-Up or Cool-down cycle may crash the system. (The warm-up time is complete when the green light on the projector is no longer blinking.)
  • If needed again, the projector can be powered ON after the 2-minute cool-down cycle.

Document Camera
