Opening hours

The doors to the computer science building and all CIP Pools are open during the day (06:30 - 20:00) on workdays.

Door lock system

If you need to use the CIP-Pool or enter the computer science building at other times, you can register your FAUcard for the electronic door lock system.

If you can not open a door but you're sure you have access, please contact us.

Getting access


In order to activate your FAUCard, you have to apply for it in the IDM system via the entry Door Access - Computer Science Tower. It will be active within an hour.


Talk to the administrative staff of your chair or institute. They will advise you on the necessary steps.

Lost your card

Immediately disable your card via the IDM system or by mail.

A lost card can be used to gain unauthorized access and wreak all kinds of havoc. The person showing up in the access logs will be you, so it is in your best interest to get a lost card disabled as soon as possible.

Granting access to various doors (for staff only)

Please send us an S/MIME-signed email from your FAU email account using common style (Introductory and additional remarks are explictly permitted) containing the following strict request format for the desired door access (see below for the door list):

allow <token|login|fauid> <doorgroup> <YYYY-MM-DD|forever>


# Token
allow D01234 INFORMATIK 2026-12-31

# Login
allow ab12cdef MANLOBBI 2026-12-31

allow 00000123456 MANLOBBI forever

Please only one statement per line. Doorgroups with a suffix _UL and 'UNLOCK' in their respective description have the additional right to unlock doors for some period of time (e.g. for seminar rooms during lessons). Every access right is granted immediately and expires on the date given. Comments (beginning with '#') are allowed as long as they are in a line of their own. Furthermore leading zeros of the FAU ID can be dropped, as long as the whole sequence spans 4 or more numerals. Please also tell us if tokens, logins or FAU-IDs belong to an employee (not a student or "HIWI").

How do I permanently unlock doors?

Touch the reader twice within 2 to 7 seconds with your card or token. Make sure, that you keep your card / token at a large enough distance in between.
