Access Cards & Keys

Housing Facilities Maintenance has the in-house expertise to generate access cards, keys, and perform room core changes for its residents.  Typically, residents are issued a room/mailbox key and card access at the beginning of the academic year or their stay during summer.  Should a resident loose a key or card, a new one will be made up at a charge.  It is important that residents report such losses immediately to their Hall Director, Resident Advisor or Supervisor.  Core key changes and card access assignments are given high priority for your safety.
