Hill Locations - Bldg. 6, 33, 55, 56, 64, 66, 80, 84 , 86)

*NOTE: This procedure is for adding badge access only. BSBK Access schedule requests still need to go through BSBK-AccessRequest@lbl.gov.

The Lab has a new badge management system that allows badge-holders to go online to add additional building access to their badge. The Security & Emergency Services Division has been working on this project for several years as one step in a multi-step plan to improve security and safety at Lab sites.

To request access, you will need to log in before following these instructions:

  1. Select “Area Request”.

  2. Look up the area you want to access.

  3. Click “Add” on the right side of the area name.

    1. You may add multiple areas in a single request by searching for the applicable areas and clicking “Add” for each of them

    2. Some areas are authorized by multiple divisions and will have a self-service listing for each division. Add just ONE area, and choose the one with the division you work for or that is most applicable for the work you will be doing in this area

  4. Click “Done” on the top right, and you’ll be directed to the request form.

  5. Type in your reason for the request in the appropriate field.

  6. Select “Submit Request” at the top right of the page.

  7. Your request will be routed to the area’s authorizer. After it has been approved, the access will be automatically added to your badge.

  8. You can check the status of your requests on the homepage under “My Requests”, which lists all of your requests that have not yet been approved and applied.

If you need sitewide access, please review this list of access areas and determine which, if any, is appropriate for you.

If you do not see the area you are requesting in the self-service list, please email siteaccess@lbl.gov.

Additional resources and instructional videos can be found on our new Shared Drive.

If you are an area authorizer (i.e. a SAM), you have access to the Security Access Managers Resources Google Drive.

Request access to building 33 for your LBL badge by using this self-service website. You should select "33 Perimeter" and "33 1st floor Office / lab area." You will also need access to "LBNL Business Need Access" and "LBNL Gates/50 Complex/Library," but these should be assigned to you by default and no specific request should be needed.

By default, you will NOT have off-hours site access to buildings (i.e. from 5:30pm to 7am on weekdays, on weekends, holidays) unless a request is submitted.
