Key Request Guidelines/Key Issue Policy

Op11.11 Key Request Guidelines/Key Issue Policy


A cooperative effort by the Facilities Management Department and the Safety and Transportation Department will create and maintain a keying system which will ensure a reasonable balance of physical security and convenience to persons authorized to possess keys to University facilities.

The effective control and security of university buildings are necessary requirements for the safety and protection of university personnel and equipment. Therefore, the following policy is established for the issuance and security of university keys, which are the heart of an effective building security system.


All keys are property of the university. The duplication or transfer of any university key is strictly prohibited. Possession or duplication of keys to the lock of any building or other property owned by the university or any agency thereof without proper permission will constitute suspension or revocation of key privileges and/or associated charges.
