The Tap and Go Program is part of ECPD’s ongoing commitment to providing the safest possible environment for students, faculty, staff, and guests. All Emerson community members are strongly encouraged to have their ID cards in hand and ready to tap in before approaching security desks in the lobbies of campus buildings. For students, the guest sign-in process remains the same for the residence halls.
Tap and Go requires all students, staff, and faculty members to use their Emerson ID cards to enter all campus buildings 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will require all visitors to be registered as a guest by an Emerson community member.
Faculty and staff will be able to register guests in advance by logging into iVisitor Guest Registration where the user will enter the guest’s name, the host’s name, building, and date and time of the visit. Once the guest checks in, security will provide a guest badge. The faculty or staff member will receive an email notification that their visitor has arrived and is on route to the meeting location.
