Special Notice

Access to the Regents Center will switch over to card access beginning March 23,2015. The purpose for moving to card access is to limit the number of non-campus members using the facilities without proper authorization.  It is important for us to manage who is utilizing the facility and equipment.

All of the entrance doors to the facility will be locked, except for the south entrance (while the building is open for community hours), and the ramp door by room 305, (8am to 5pm M-F.) Faculty, staff and students will be required to have their Luther College ID card to access the building from the doors that have card readers. The readers will be programmed to allow access during normal building hours for most people.

Starting on March 23rd, if you do not have your ID, please plan on using the south lobby entrance.
