  • Steal the UC Security Keycard from the UC Security Office. The UC Security Office is opposite The Viewport, and you can steal a UC Security Card from the locker room in the back.
  • Call in a favor with Sergeant Yumi. Sergeant Yumi is found at the counter of the UC Security Office, and if you've helped him with the security missions in New Atlantis or completed the UC Vanguard questline, you can just ask him for a keycard.
