The university maintains a control system for university keys and locks. The purpose is to provide maximum security on campus.

Only personnel in the Physical Plant Department are authorized to install locks or locking devices on university facilities.

Key Requests

The issuing department must prepare a Key Request Form (via PAWS).

All key requests must be presented to the Customer Service Center, 065 Allyn Hall.

If the key request document is properly authorized, the Customer Service Center will have the key(s) produced. The Customer Service Center will call you when your key is ready for pick-up, usually within three working days of the request.

See University Policy 7130 for information regarding key deposits and key authority.
