  1. Lost or stolen keys must be reported to both Facilities Managements Key Shop and Campus Police immediately. There is a button the on the Key Shop web site that allows you to do this in one step. Replacement keys will not be issued until this has been done. When keys are reported lost or stolen, re-keying of the lock may be considered. This decision is made by the Key Shop with input from both the affected department and Campus Police. Although there is no charge for the issuing of keys, the re-keying process is chargeable to cover the labor and materials necessary to change the cores. The affected department would be responsible for this charge.
  2. When keys are found, they should be returned to 241 Darland - Key Shop or Campus Police
  1. Campus keys/proximity cards allow many individuals access into areas that need to be secure. It is essential that all departments do everything necessary to keep our system accurate and secure.
  2. Every key or card issued is coded to the individual or department named on the key request. It is important that they not be borrowed or transferred to any other personnel. If it is discovered that a proximity card is being used by someone other than who it was issued to, it will be deactivated immediately.
  3. When a person no longer needs access to an area, terminates employment, or transfers to a new department, unneeded keys should be returned to 241 Darland - Key Shop.
