  • Your name
  • Employee ID number
  • ID badge number (located on the back of your badge)
  • Room number to the area you need to access

All requests have to be reviewed by the Departmental Access Approval Authority for the area where access is requested, according to the MD Anderson Identification Badge Policy (ADM0282) (credentials required) and UTHealth Houston HOOP Policy 148 Identification Badges.

Campus safety

Your employee ID badge is proof that you belong at MD Anderson and UTHealth Houston, and you’re required to wear it at all times while on campus.

When using your ID badge to enter a secured area, always be aware of tailgaters trying to slip in behind you. When someone is close enough to take advantage of a door opened with your ID badge, try to locate the person’s ID badge.

When you encounter strangers without ID badges in restricted areas, offer your assistance. Help them find their destinations or direct them to building entrances where public safety officers are stationed.

If someone's responses or demeanor seems suspicious, call UT Police at 713-792-2890. Always call 911 if you’re in immediate danger.
