CTRE Security and IT Updates

January 14, 2016

Dear Loyola Health Sciences Community,

This week we welcomed our first occupants to the Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE) including the Office of Research Services and Clinical Research Office. Progress will continue on Monday as you will see the Cardiovascular Research Institute complete its move. Many thanks to these groups and our excellent move team for their collaboration so far.

As occupants get settled, we are getting a better sense of the needs and issues that arise during the move-in process. This week we’d like to highlight the following:

  • For safety and security reasons, the front door of the building will be locked at all times until everyone has moved into the CTRE in April. Those who have already moved in will have 24/7 access with their badges.
  • If you are not an occupant of the CTRE but need access (ex: for a meeting), you will need to obtain a guest badge from the front security desk. You will exchange your ID for a guest badge, which gives you access to floors 1-5.
  • Due to the building design and safety concerns, nothing can be affixed to office windows, including blinds or any kind of light restrictors.
  • CTRE occupants will have a new model office phone, but will keep existing telephone numbers. Brief training sessions are being offered in Room 140, CTRE on February 10 and March 9 at 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Sondra Heine at sheine@luc.edu

To keep the move-in process going as smoothly as possible, we are continually updating the Frequently Asked Questions portion of the CTRE website at LUC.edu/ctre/logistics. Please visit this site for additional information.
