Access to Campus Facilities
Buildings: Campus buildings (restrooms and some classrooms) are generally open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Individuals needing to be in campus buildings or College areas other than during regularly scheduled work hours should contact campus security at (831) 646-4099.
Campus buildings are normally locked from 5:00 p.m. Friday to 7:00 a.m. Monday. College personnel unlock doors for scheduled weekend classes and special events.
It is the responsibility of all MPC personnel who use rooms, offices, and areas to lock access doors, turn off lights, and close windows. College staff routinely checks the campus during off-hours. Primary responsibility for security, however, lies with the individual last in the facility.
Keys: Keys are provided to staff members on a need-to-enter basis as determined by the appropriate administrator. Lost keys must be reported immediately to one’s supervisor and to Campus Security (831-646-4099) and Facilities (831-646-4049).
District policy forbids keys to be loaned to other staff members or students. Campus Security will confiscate keys which have not been specifically issued to a particular individual. Duplication of campus keys is a misdemeanor.
Animals on Campus
No animals are allowed to be brought on campus or kept in vehicles on campus except service animals or animals being used as part of a scheduled class. Animals left in cars may be turned over to Monterey Animal Control.
Bicycles, Skateboards, and Rollerblades
These vehicles must be parked in areas so marked. They may not be ridden on inner campus pathways and must be walked through the campus interior.
Collection and Raising of Funds

Likewise, no non-student group or individual may collect funds on campus or have campus groups collect for them without prior approval of the College administration.
Do not remove District property from the campus without written permission from a Vice President or Dean. Unauthorized removal of District property from the campus is a violation of the law and may be prosecuted by the District. The loan and/or rental of District equipment must be approved by the Superintendent/President.
Emergency Only: In cases of extreme emergency, such as sudden illness or accident, students may be contacted on campus by calling Campus Security at (831) 646-4099. Non-emergency messages are not delivered to students.
