Building Access

You can use your OneCard as a key to access a range of campus buildings. As campus expands, you will be able to use your OneCard to access even more spaces at Swarthmore.

Administrative & Academic Buildings and Student Life Spaces

There are currently over 30 Academic, Administrative, and Student Life buildings enabled with OneCard access. Most buildings remain unlocked for specified hours during the day and require OneCard access after hours. Card access is granted based on specific needs (course enrollment, job requirements, etc.). 

The Matchbox facility is accessible to students, faculty and staff with your OneCard, though you will first need to complete a waiver form online via MySwarthmore. If your waiver for the Matchbox is up to date, you will not need to fill out an additional form.

You can log in to the OneCard Center to see where your key is enabled. Please note that your room key will not allow you entry into OneCard accessible buildings; you will need to use your OneCard to enter.
