For safety and security, residence hall doors are locked 24 hours a day. Students are encouraged to keep their individual rooms locked at all times.
The Office of Campus Safety issues keys to rooms and residence halls at the beginning of the academic year, or when a new student arrives on campus.
Students who may have lost their keys should request a temporary replacement at the Campus Safety Office, Administrative Service Center, 368 South Prairie Street. A fee of $25 per key will be issued for all lost/non-returned keys and will be charged to the student's account. A fee of $50 will be issued for all lock changes.
At the end of the school year, or at the time of departure, keys must be returned to the Campus Safety Office, Administrative Services Center, 368 South Prairie Street. A $25 charge will be added to the student account for any keys returned after a designated date (at the end of the year it is the Friday after Commencement).
