Key Control

The safekeeping of keys is the responsibility of all faculty and staff. The Key Agreement Form is our record of the ownership of keys. Key Agreements will be signed in exchange for the use of building keys with the following statement included:

I, the undersigned, acknowledge receipt of the keys designated above. I also agree not to loan, transfer, give possession of, misuse, modify or alter the above keys. I further agree not to cause, allow or contribute to the making of any unauthorized copies of the above keys.

I understand and agree that violation of this agreement may render me responsible for the expenses of a relock for the affected areas. I also understand and agree that a repeat offense may result in further disciplinary action being taken against me.

Lock Change
A determination will be made by the Physical Plant staff on the need to rekey door(s). If the dean of a division or department director wishes to change the lock on any area, a written request (email) must be made to the Physical Plant staff. Cost of rekeying may be the responsibility of the division or department requesting change.

Lost/Stolen Keys
Should any key be lost or stolen, Physical Plant staff must be notified immediately. A determination will be made by the Physical Plant staff on the need to rekey door(s). Cost of cutting of new keys or rekeying lock may be the responsibility of the division or department making request.

Key Requests

To request a key, an online Key Request form must be submitted to the Physical Plant staff by the individual’s division dean or department director. Internal personnel changes that include redistribution of keys should be handled by the staff of the Physical Plant to ensure all transfers are recorded on employees’ Key Agreement form. Upon termination of employment, keys should be turned in to the Human Resources Department. The HR Department will turn the keys over to the Physical Plant office. Key agreements signed by staff and faculty are located in the Physical Plant office.

Please allow seven (7) days for key requests to be filled.

Campus Security is responsible for issuing codes for entering building(s). Requests for codes should be made directly to Campus Security.
