Passage Mode

AllĀ room doors in upperclass suite-style residence halls are enabled with passage mode. Passage mode allows individual room door locks to lock or remain unlocked with the use of a resident's University ID card. Suite doors will still lock automatically. Please see the instructions below to enable or disable passage mode.

Locations where Passage Mode can be enabled are as follows:

  • East Campus
  • Ruggles
  • 47 Claremont
  • Hogan Hall
  • Watt (L and F Suite Rooms only)
  • Harmony (102-106 Suite Rooms only)

Enable Passage Mode

  1. Swipe your room key as you normally would to open the door. As you unlock the door, you will see a short green light blink.
  2. After the door has been unlocked, swipe your key a second time. You will see a second green light blink indicating that passage mode has been activated.

*If you see a red light, try again after 15 seconds. If you continue seeing a red light, please contact the 24-hour Hartley Hospitality Desk at 212-854-2779.

Disable Passage Mode

  1. Swipe your room key as you normally would to open the door. You should see a steady green light. If the green light only blinks but does not stay on, passage mode is already disabled.
  2. While the green light is still on, swipe your key a second time. You will see the green light blink and hear the door lock.

*If you see a red light, try again after 15 seconds. If you continue seeing a red light, please contact the 24-hour Hartley Hospitality Desk at 212-854-2779.
