Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

Indian university installs video security system

Monday, July 30, 2012

In an effort to boost security, India’s University of Hyderabad has closed down all its entrances, except the main gate, and installed a visitor management system–essentially a camera that produces an instant photo ID which is valid for a day on campus.

While the idea to deploy such a surveillance system was proposed a year ago, the upcoming biodiversity conference, in which foreign delegates will be housed on campus, prompted the school to set up the security measures as soon as possible.


“We’ll have foreign delegates living on campus; hence, the new surveillance system would only strengthen security,” said a school spokesperson.

School authorities will also now be able to know the number of people visiting its campus on any given day. All visitors will gain entry only from the main gate and they have to return the pass at the same gate while leaving the campus. On an average 300 to 400 visitors come to the University of Hyderabad daily.

Contract changes and expirations have caused a crunch for University of Chicago students looking to top up their ID cards with laundry funds.

The University removed cash-to-card machines from residence halls at the beginning of this academic year, leaving students with just two locations at which they can reload their ID cards for laundry. Now, rather than having machines located in residence halls, the students must report to two central locations, a campus convenience store and Bartlett Hall, a highly trafficked building that contains a dining hall, and other student resources.
