A New York university has decided to deploy an advanced solution featuring full height turnstiles along with a proximity card access control system to manage and monitor the access of students on the premises, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
Located 25 miles east of New York City in Hempstead, Long Island, Hofstra University campus boasts 115 buildings on 240 acres, 1180 faculty members and over 7000 full-time undergraduate students. With so many students in a densely populated area of Long Island, Hofstra takes student safety quite seriously.
The university decided to install full height turnstiles at entrances to residential halls and complexes to work with their existing access control system. “To date, seven turnstiles have been installed to cover seven residential towers”, Bob McDonald, Associate Director of Public Safety, explained. “Our employees appreciate the greater control and our parents feel much more comfortable.”
