Emergency Requests: If there is a life-threatening emergency, dial 911 from a building phone, or 510-642-3333 from a cell phone. For Facilities Emergency Issues (such as burst pipes or a condition where significant damage to the facility or personal injury may result) call 510-502-6025. Please make sure to reach someone. If you cannot get a response from either of these numbers, please call the Physical Plant at 642-1032.
Defibrillators: There are two Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) located in Sutardja Dai Hall, inside room 330 and inside the 5th Floor collaboratory. They are to be used in case of a cardiac emergency only and an alarm will sound when the door is opened. Dial 911 from a building phone, or 510-642-3333 from a cell phone before using an AED. Instructions are provided in the packet attached to the device.

Computer Workstation Ergonomics
Employees who use their computers for four hours or more per day are encouraged to request an ergonomic evaluation of their computer workstation. University Health Services sponsors an Ergonomics@Work Program that offers an interactive on-line workshop, Computer Health Matters, with which employees may evaluate their workstations from their own computers.
Sutardja Dai Hall is mainly a research facility. The entry doors are open Monday through Friday 7 AM to 5:30 PM. Research collaboratories will be accessible by card key only. All building occupants must have either a CalID or another UCPD issued card key (for non-UC employees) to be able to gain access to the building during off-business hours. Some rooms are also on card key access. UCPD does not allow metal key overrides to be issued for doors on the card key system; so for those areas, card keys are required.
These are the rooms/areas with card key access:
- Exterior Doors (After Hours)
- 4th Floor Collaboratory – Rm 450
- 5th Floor Collaboratory – Rm 550
- Nanolab Offices – Rm 520
- Nanofabrication Laboratory – Rm 580
- 6th Floor Collaboratory – Rm 621
- 7th Floor Collaboratory – Rm 750
Metal keys will be issued for all other areas.
For access to the building please fill out the Access Request Form and return it to the Reception Desk in the Tech Museum (Room 356) between 9-4, Monday-Friday. Your form must be signed by your supervisor or PI in order to be processed. In order to receive a card key or metal key, all students must pay a $10 fee (cash, check or money order payable to “UC Regents”; PIs may submit a COA for visiting scholars). You can also request furniture keys to lock your desk drawers and overhead bins. Please specify on your request form what floor you are on and what desk you are working at (three digit number located on front edge of the desk). Card keys will be activated within two business days of receipt of the form. Please contact Domenico Caramagno (email@example.com, 510-502-6025) for any questions regarding access.
Doors with closers should not be propped open unless they have been equipped with magnetic door devices to keep them open. These doors are fire rated and must remain in the closed position in case of an emergency per the fire code.
Protection of equipment and personal valuables: Many people both on and off campus have an interest in walking through Sutardja Dai Hall at this time. UCPD reports that most crimes on campus happen between 1 PM and 5 PM, Monday through Friday because the criminals can more easily blend in with the crowds of people or “hide in plain sight.” Securing all your valuables and not leaving areas unsecured will help prevent theft. Please make sure that doors close securely behind you; and do not prop doors open, especially in unoccupied areas. Do not invite criminals in!
Other ways to prevent theft:
- Do not open doors for people you do not know. Ask to which lab or office they belong. Or, inform them you will let the Facilities Office (Room 330A) know that they need access.
- Do not label keys with the area or room numbers they operate.
- Report any lost keys or card keys immediately. Card keys can be turned off in minutes, preventing their use.
- Do not leave keys or card keys lying around, especially in public areas.
- Turn in any keys found to the Facilities Office.
- Do not loan keys to anyone.
- Make sure to collect keys from all departing students or employees. All keys must be returned to the Facilities Office immediately upon departure. Do not keep these keys as spares.
