Access to campus buildings

HAMK uses the Esmi access control system, which enables students, staff and other stakeholders to enter our buildings when they are locked.

You can have your HAMKO student membership card activated to function as the key card so that you can enter the buildings. If you are not a member of HAMKO, you can obtain a key card from the office of HAMKO at the university centre. HAMKO office can also be contacted to find out where to obtain a key card on the other campuses.

You cannot have both the key card and the student membership card activated at the same time. You must return the key card when your studies end. A fee of 30 euros will be charged if you lose your card.

You may enter the buildings of HAMK (and the sports hall at the university centre) from 6.00 to 22.00, during which time the key cards are activated. You are not allowed to be in any of HAMK’s buildings or sports hall after 22.00 as it will alert the security company. The person causing the alarm to go off will be charged the total costs incurred. When the alarm is set off and a security guard arrives, the persons in the building must show their official identification. You can use your student card (with a photo) to identify yourself.

In case of user error situations (e.g. wrong PIN code too many times), the person who calls the security company to open the door, has to pay for the service visit. At the moment of writing this (November 2022), the charge is 38.44€.

Please note that you should never borrow your key card to anyone or lend anyone else’s key card.

If you have any questions related to the key card or access to the HAMK buildings, please contact Facilities Management and Services.
