Handkey Access System

Forgot your access code?

All members access the facility through turnstile gates operated by the HandKey Access system. This system uses the combination of a unique code and hand geometry to identify users by measuring the size and shape of the member's hand including length, width, thickness and surface area. The HandKey Access System does not read or store fingerprints or any other legally identifiable information.

Read the HandKey FAQ or visit the Honeywell Access Control System website.

For accommodations regarding HandKey access, please contact membership services or the Cal Poly Disability Resource Center.
