Keys are provided for Teaching Assistants and Assistant Instructors in order to hold individual office hours and access classrooms if applicable.
Ask your supervisor (course instructor) what keys you will need, and request them by emailing the Art and Art History Building Technician, Theron Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org. After you receive a signed key slip, take it to Service Building 101 (directions below) to pick up your keys.
More information can be found on the Lock & Key Services page. Contact Clare Thoman (Grad Program Coordinator) if you are missing keys.
Art History key(s) will access:
- Graduate Student Instructor Office
- Art History Suite door
- Back entrance to the Art History Suite
- Mail room
- Conference room (DFA 2.506)
If you will not be a TA or AI in the subsequent academic year, you must return your key to Keys by the end of the academic year. Do not put the room number or other identifying information on your key.
Studio Art Students, please contact the Graduate Advisor regarding keys for your room. If you have a smart room with a door code, the code will be emailed to you by the course scheduler at the beginning of the semester.
Keys Service Building
Take your UT student photo ID and the key request slip with you to pick up your key in the Service Building (SER), on 24th St. near San Jacinto. You will not be able to get your key without a student or government-issued photo ID and the request form.
Key building directions from DFA: Cross the street and turn right towards the Texas Memorial Museum and cut between the ART Building and the museum. Go down the lovely tree lined mall to The Mustangs statue. Cross San Jacinto onto 24th St. and stay on the right side of the street, cross the creek and the Service Building is the first building on the right. There will be a simple brass sign on a post in front of the Service Building that says “Keys.”
Teaching Assistants and Assistant Instructors with a 20 hours/week appointment are eligible to purchase A Parking Permits. In August, the Graduate Coordinator sends Parking a list of all Art History graduate students eligible for an A Parking Permit. Once this list is processed by Parking, your eligibility will be updated. Review the information here via My Parking Profile to review your eligibility status.
If you are a new student as well as a new employee, you will not be able to purchase your A permit until you have registered and paid tuition.
