Opening Hours / Key Cards
Our new location and facility required 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 an access policy for faculty and staff.
The access will be programmed into your access card.
All salaried employees will have access to the building all year round outside the opening hours via the side entrance. Staff have to follow the specifications of the Flex-time-Agreement or the hours set forth in their employee contracts.
The access policy can be reviewed in the shared HR info folder: O:\HR Info\3. Employee Processes and Procedures\Facility Management

Every office and classroom has got a heating and cooling system. The panel that is situated on the side of the door gives you LIMITED possibility to control the temperature of the room. Some rooms have radiators to control the heat, other have combined devices. Please note that in order to have air exchange in your office the climate control needs to be set to "on". In the summer months please do NOT turn off the control panel every evening. The building has a centralized system and reduces the heat/cooling outside of office hours automatically. During the heating period (outside temperatures below 14 degrees C) no cooling is possible - only the air exchange is working.
Our campus accommodates multiple kitchen areas. Every floor except the 4th floor has a kitchen area, where you can find a fridge, dishwasher, sink and a coffee machine. Coffee, tea and water supplies are for staff and faculty only. In the student lounge on the ground floor you can find a Café+Co coffee machine and a soft drinks vending machine. Tokens for a discounted price and cashless payment are available available at the front desk. (€ 5 cash – will be returned when token is handed back) The token is working on all Café+Co vending machines in Austria.
Free coffee for students is available at the Business and Management department kitchen area on 1st floor.
