They are located in Greve Hall Room G15. Business hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Keys

Issuance of keys, re-keying of buildings, and general locksmith services are provided by the Facilities Services Lock & Key Services unit. Requests for Lock & Key Services and inquires about charges for services should be directed to the Facilities Services One Call Number 946-7777.

Lock Policy

All locks on doors of university buildings, both exterior and interior, must be furnished by Lock & Key Services and be on a master key available to Building Services and Safety personnel. Occupant installed locks or padlocks will be removed by the Facilities Services Department, with the cost for removal and instillation of university locks billed to the department or entity to which the space is assigned. Issues with this policy should be discussed with the Associate Vice Chancellor of Facilities Services (974-2178).

Lock Repair

Malfunctions of building locks, door hardware, or panic bar hardware should be reported to Facilities Services by calling the One Call Number, 946-7777. These repairs are building maintenance functions for which no charge is addressed. Changing of locks, issuance of keys and re-keying of rooms or buildings are matters under the administrative responsibility of the Associate Vice Chancellor of Facilities Services (974-2178).
