The University of Glamorgan in Wales has installed new security measures that require a swipe card to enter certain parts of the building. Access to the building from the main entrance will not be restricted, but students and staff will have to swipe their card to enter the main teaching areas.
“The University of Glamorgan is currently enhancing security at its Cardiff city center campus,” said a university spokesperson. “In line with other city based universities, the swipe card system will maintain the security of students, staff and equipment at our busy city center building.”
The new security has drawn mixed reactions from students. “I think it’s a really good idea. It’s good to have some sort of security seeing as the university provides so much equipment for us,” said one student.
Another student disagrees. “I don’t really like the idea of the swipe cards. They are just more hassle than they’re worth.”
