Please Note Our Updated Security Access Measures:

  • If you have registered for a class, please present your photo ID to front desk security. If security does not have a pre-printed badge for you, it is because you are not registered for a class or you have registered late. No worries! Security will direct you to our office on the 8th floor, where you’ll speak with a C.A.R. staff member who will collect your information and get your badge ready for your next visit.
  • Security will give you a pre-printed badge.
  • Scan your badge at the turnstile and you will be directed to an elevator number that you will take to the 8thFloor.
