Jefferson Lab Badging Office

How do I get a badge?

To obtain a JLab photo identification/access badge, approved guests and new employees must satisfy the following requirements:

  1. Complete Electronic Access Request Registration Form
  2. Complete required training requirements

To ensure a timely and efficient transition into the Lab, submittal of the Electronic Access Request Registration Form is required at least 7 days before the onsite arrival start date. 

A link to submit an Electronic Access Request Registration Form can be found here:

Access levels on-site are then granted through completion of required training courses for each area.

Once these requirements have been satisfied, approved guests and new employees can schedule a badging appointment at the link below:

What if I forgot my badge and am coming onsite?
