Facilities

Opening Hours / Key Cards
Our new location and facility requires us to re-evaluate the security needs of the institution in terms of allowing access to the building outside of regular operating hours. We have also taken into consideration our budget for building security and labor law regulations as they may affect this matter.  With these factors in mind we have developed the following policy of building access for faculty and staff:

Vienna Campus Access Policy

Building Accessibility Policy

This access policy will be programmed into your key card (NOTE: If you haven’t already received your key card please see the Receptionist at the main entrance or contact facility@webster.ac.at ).

Please review the Building Accessibility Policy.
The regular operating hours of Webster in the Palais Wenkheim are as follows:
 
Monday-Friday, 8 am to 10 pm  (entrance to building ends at 10 pm, exit by 10:30 pm)
Saturday, 2 pm to 6 pm  (entrance to building ends at 6 pm, exit by 6:30 pm)

Faculty and staff are allowed in the building during these times; and the parking garage will be available to those who have rented parking spaces during these times. For more information about reserving a parking space please see the Receptionist at the main entrance or contact facility@webster.ac.at .
Staff have to follow the specifications of the Flex-time-Agreement or the hours set forth in their employee contracts.

  1. In addition, Faculty & staff will have access to the building Monday through Friday, 8 am to 10 pm all year round EXCEPT during our summer two-week Betriebsurlaub and all public holidays (+Dec.24 & 31).
  2. Further, we will allow faculty and staff on all-in contracts to access the building on the weekends from 8 am to 6 pm, via the side entrance only (entrance to building ends at 6 pm, exit by 6:30 pm).  The parking garage will be available on Saturdays (when we have an afternoon security person) but not on Sundays
  3. Webster is closed on all Austrian public holidays (no matter what day of the week they occur) and there will be NO access to the building for anyone on these days.
  4. During the two-week summer Betriebsurlaub and public holidays (+ Dec. 24 & 31) there will be no access to the building for anyone.

Exceptions to the above will be considered when they meet an institutional (i.e. not a personal) need (e.g. University-sponsored events).

Parking
The new campus is very close to the U-Bahnstation Nestroyplatz. For those who prefer their own car there are limited car parking slots available for visitors and adjuncts. Please read the Parking Policy and Parking Rules for details on allocation of parking spaces.

Faculty Mailboxes
Faculty mailboxes are located near the Reception desk at the main entrance. In addition to the e-mail communication, your mailbox will be used for all communications from staff members, so please check it before each class session.

Where to Print Scan and Copy
The new “Follow-You” is a similar printing system like the old Follow-Me but with advanced features and the same procedure with your personal card. (NOTE: If you haven’t already received your key card please see the Receptionist at the main entrance or contact facility@webster.ac.at).

Wireless Lan (W-Lan) is available throughout the whole building. The password is:  Webster2015
