The usual entrance to IEMath-GR is through Rector López-Argüeta street (by the parking of the Centro de Documentación Científica). This entrance has a door separating the IEmath-GR from the area of the Centro de Documentación Científica, equipped with an electronic card reader (see below). The main entrace to the IEMath-GR’s building has another card reader of the same type.

Except for special occassions, the access by Ventanilla street is closed.

Access electronic cards. To open the two electronic locks at the doors to enter the IEMath-GR, an electronic card is required. IEMath-GR does not provided these cards, which are supplied by the UGR following one of the following procedures:

  • For UGR members, the electronic card is the tarjeta universitaria (permanent validity). See instructions  here. Once you have the tarjeta universitaria, it must be configured  to open the two locks that you will encounter when trying to access the IEMath-GR. To do this, please send an email asking for this configuration  together with your name, NIF and Department to Maria Dolores Medina Mesa (Administradora Facultad Ciencias Políticas): mdoloresmedina(at), or to Juanjo Contreras (responsable negociado): juanjo(at) Those members of the UGR that are waiting for their tarjeta universitaria to arrive, can ask for a TEMPORARY DUPLICATE in any of the two above email addresses.
  • External visitors to the UGR can apply for a visitor card, which has a temporary validity. These cards can be obtained by the following procedure:
    • Fill this form (three copies, already contained in the previous pdf file). In this form, be sure to include the email address of the visitor in the field “Datos de contacto”. Also, the data in the fields “Datos de la persona responsable de la UGR que da el Visto Bueno a la solicitud” and the corresponding signature in the left square refer to the head of the Department of the host researcher, or to the Director of the institute. The visitor will only sign in the center square. The right square should contain the expected ending date of the visit, in the field “Fecha CAD”, but no signature will be included and the field “NI tarjeta” will be left blank.
    • Deliver the three copies of the form at the Secretaría del Departamento de Álgebra (office 34 – 2nd floor of the Mathematics building, Sciences Faculty), together with a copy of the DNI or passport of the visitor. In this case, the host researcher will provide contact data to the secreatary (staff) of the Department of Algebra, Sonia-Chantal Gil González. Alternatively, this step can be done by sending an email with scanned versions of the three copies of the form and the DNI or passport to; in this last case, the body of the message will contain the contact data of the host researcher.
    • Once the temporary card has been activated, host and guest researchers will receive an email to make them know that the card is ready to be collected by the visitor at the Secretaría del Departamento de Álgebra. When collecting the card, the visitor will sign in the right square of the form.
    • At the end of the stay, either the visitor or the host researcher will give the card back at the Secretaría del Departamento de Álgebra.

    WARNING: Applying for a visitor card in advance will let the visitor use the card from the first day of his/her stay. By default, temporary cards only include access to the building (side door and main entrance). If the office assigned to a visitor has an electronic locker, access to it can be added to the card. To do this, simply send an email to with the data: number of the temporary card, visitor’s name, assigned office and period of the stay.
