FAB/EB Card Access

The main entrances on the 4th Avenue side of the Engineering Building and Fourth Avenue Building are open from 7:30 to 5:30 Monday to Friday. For all other entrances and after hours you must have an active keycard to gain entry to the Fourth Avenue Building, the Engineering Building, and all of the MCECS labs. Information on where to acquire a PSU ID card can be found on the main PSU website.

Activating MCECS Card Access

Any student registered for an MCECS class is eligible for MCECS Card Access and need only bring their PSU ID to FAB88 (for CS Students) or EB100 (All other students) to get the card activated.

For non-students, a department can indicate an individual as eligible for card access within Banner. This is visible to the CAT and the individual is then granted access specified by the department.

The card will be activated by CPSO 2-5 days after either of these actions have been taken.

MCECS Card Access Deactivation


MCECS Card Access is deactivated by one of three ways:

  • If you haven’t attended MCECS classes for 12 months. At this point, your card access is expired and you must submit a request to the CAT to turn it back on.
  • If a department notifies the CAT that a member of their department no longer requires card access. Card access expired in this manner can be reversed by another request from the department.
  • If a user violates PSU or MCECS policy, card access is deactivated and the user is notified. Card access can be regained by completing any of the conditions under “Activating MCECS Card Access” If the breach also resulted in a permanent loss of MCECS account, card access can no longer be restored.
