Stairwell Access to ITS

Access to the fifth floor of Exley Science Center, where ITS is located, has been restricted for the past few years. The floor is open for public access from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM during weekdays (except University holidays). However,  the stairwell door has been locked. We received comments that this is very inconvenient to those who want to visit ITS during regular working hours but want to take the stairs instead of the elevators. Based on this, we have re-programmed the door lock so that access from the stairwell will be open from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM during weekdays (except holidays). If you continue to encounter problems, please call Bonnie Penders at (860) 685-3096 or send email to
