Each resident student is issued a room key and a mailbox key when they officially check into the residence hall. Students also receive an access card to their building. Remember to take care of your keys. A lost key or access card may jeopardize your own safety. For security reasons, residents may not have a key to rooms other than their own, nor may they have more than one key to their own room. Any student using another person’s access card or giving their access card to another individual will be subject to a $200 fine and/or disciplinary action. Students are encouraged to keep their ground level windows locked when not in room.
A $25 fee is charged for the replacement of a lost or damaged access card. When a student loses a key, the lock will be replaced, new keys made and the student will be charged for the new lock and labor. This policy minimizes the possibility that someone may find the key and gain access to that room. Anyone finding a key should give the key to a staff member immediately. Only College personnel are authorized to change or repair locks or to duplicate keys.
