Lab Locations and Facility Access


Card Access to Instrument Rooms

Following instrument training, make sure you get access to all the instrument areas.  There is nothing worse than your experiment being ready to be run and you cannot get into the room.  Click HERE or contact the 5 people below, and copy & paste into an email, providing the following 6 pieces of information:

1. I need access to all these locations: HSE3, HSW542, S854, HSW10, HSW11, HSW1209, and S1456.

2. Whose lab do you work in?

3. Why do you need access to the facility?

4. How long you need access for (end date and year)?

5. Provide your UCSF Employee ID number (9 digits).

6. Have a picture (any file format) of the front and back of your UCSF ID. It helps to include the numbers on your ID if they are hard to read.

For access to HSE3, HSW542, S854, HSW10, HSW11, and HSW1209 please email the following 5 people:
