All Lemberg parents need a Brandeis ID card to access the classrooms. Brandeis-affiliated parents are able to use their student/staff/faculty IDs also for access. Non-Brandeis affiliated parents will be issued ID cards which have a photo ID on them and which will grant them access.
Remember: We require all parents to use their cards when entering the center. The doorbell is for emergency purposes only. The time that it takes teachers to answer the door bell and let you in is time taken away from your children.
Parents who already have a student/staff/faculty ID
If you have not already done so, please bring your card to the office for us to make a photocopy, or email us with the number on your card. We will then give your card access to the classrooms. This may take up to a few days to be processed.
New parents who need ID cards
You will need to go to the Campus Card Office and get an ID card. Your name will be sent to them prior to the beginning of the school year, and all you will need to get one is a photo ID such as a drivers license. The Campus Card Office is open between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. normally. Because many of you have jobs that do not allow you to come during those hours, the people at the card office have agreed to expand their hours on an as-needed basis. Just email us in the office to set up an earlier or later date and time if needed.
The process to get a card should only take about 10 minutes. The card office is located in Kutz Hall. You can easily walk there from Lemberg: go across South St through the main gate to Brandeis campus and head towards upper campus. After passing Skyline Residence Hall, you will see a road on your right leading to North Quad. Your first doors on the left (up some stairs) are to Kutz Hall's lower level where the Card Office is located.
After you have received your card please email us with the number on your card. We will then give your card access to the classrooms. This may take up to a few days to be processed.
Please report lost cards to the office by email as soon as you have lost them. We need to remove that card's access to the center, to continue to ensure the safety of your children. You will be issued a new card, and will need to follow the steps above to get a card at the Campus Card Office.
Problems with card access
If your card is not working to open the doors to the classrooms, please email us with the number on your card. We will then give your card access to the classrooms. This may take up to a few days to be processed.
