Area Access Manager


SUNY Geneseo's Area Access Manager is a secure web application that enables departments to self-manage electronic access.

Departments discuss needs with us, we create "Access Levels" that meet those needs and departments can then assign those Access Levels to individuals.

An "Access Level" is a group of one or more doors paired with day/time constraints. An example would be "External public doors of Brodie 9am-9pm weekdays and noon-9pm Sat & Sundays. "

Getting Started

Area Access Manager is a web application that is compatible with most internet browsers. You do need an account set up before signing on. Accounts are available for faculty & staff here at Geneseo. Usually, we work with a single contact in each department but we are flexible with that. Please get in touch.
