Each resident receives a room key in addition to their student ID card. Residents should never give their keys to other people.
Room keys give students access to their residence hall room and mailbox, located in the lobby of their residence hall.
If a resident is temporarily locked out of their room, the resident should look for a Resident Assistant in the hall who would be able to let them into their room. If there are no Resident Assistants available in the hall, the resident should contact their Hall Director. Custodial and maintenance staff cannot perform lockouts for students.
When a student loses their room key, they must go to the Residence Life office (B3 Hathorn Hall) to request a lock change and new key. When the lock is re-keyed, the locksmith will provide a new room key to residents who are present. Residents who are not present when the lock is changed can receive their new key from hall staff.
There is a fee associated to replace a lost of stolen key.
- A traditional residence hall room key is $65.
- An Ames Suites room key is $75.
- A South Fork Suites suite door only is $75. The bedroom door only is $65. Both the suite and bedroom door is $115.
