Student Card

I am a new student who recently recieved the student card from RMIT connect services and is just experiementing to what degree of access and places I can visit whlist being a student at RMIT.

During this exploration I stumbled upon a tiny room called the Vault  on Swanston street near Buliding 8 and the Swanston street library. I tried swiping my card but I wasnt given access and a sign suggested I go to the security building before I do so I wanted to ask a few questions 

 

My questions are:

Is this room accessible to all students on campus or restricted to some?

how do you gain access and if so how do I go about doing so ?

and what is actually inside the buliding itself ?

And also with the card, where and what else am I permitted to use on campus?

 

Thank you

Re: Student Card

Hi @Weijun and welcome!

 

Your student card can be enabled to allow swipe access to rooms and spaces at RMIT, though by default this is not the case.

 

24 hour lab

 

There are several study spaces such as The Vault and the 24/7 computer lab in Building 28 (see pic above) which you can access with your card once it has been set up by the security desk. You simply need to go to building 14 (corner of Franklin & Bowen st) and ask for this.

 

You can find more contact info for security here: http://www1.rmit.edu.au/security/contact#calls

 

Both the Vault and the 24 hour lab are open to all students. There are some spaces which are restricted to HDR students for example.

For some more info on student spaces, check out this: http://www1.rmit.edu.au/students/space

 

 Hope this helps.
