The Oak Ridge National Laboratory is a secure campus. Access is controlled at the East and West entrances of Bethel Valley Road through a portal manned by security personnel. Access is granted for badged personnel and subcontractors and for visitors with pre-authorization facilitated through the Personnel Access System. Building access is controlled by a proximity card issued for specific buildings as appropriate.
Parking inside (meaning inside the fence, near buildings) is by permit only. Students and subcontractors are required to park in designated lots. ORNL shuttle service to/from parking lots is available.
