Ford Building Access Requests

If you are enrolled in a Segal class or involved with a Segal program and need to access the Ford building with your Wildcard, please follow these steps:

  1. Check to make sure you have an HID Wildcard. HID cards have a series of numbers on the back that look something like this: *45603-E 13012123-1D.
  2. If you don’t have an HID card, please e-mail fordaccess@northwestern.edu and specify your Segal program or course so we can approve your request. Then go to the Wildcard office to get your new card.
  3. Once you have your HID card, submit the below google form to request access.
  4. If you are requesting access to either of the below rooms, please forward email approval from the following managers of those rooms to fordaccess@northwestern.edu:
    • B.100 Mechatronics Lab: Nick Marchuk
    • SB.310 Rapid Prototyping Lab: Mike Beltran
  5. If you are not enrolled in a Segal course or program and need access to Ford, please submit your request to your program or department staff. The e-mail address fordaccess@northwestern.edu is intended only for Segal access requests.
