All University facilities, currently equipped with a lock and key system, will be accessible by the University Master Key and Lock System. Off-master locks will only be authorized for specifically identified sensitive areas that require special security control. Such areas will be jointly determined by the Directors of Public Safety and Facilities Management along with the requesting Department Head.
With the issuance of keys, individual University employees will be issued the following:
- The lowest level key in the system hierarchy that is necessary to provide access required by the individual’s position and responsibilities and
- The least number of keys
All keys are the property of the University. It is a violation of this University policy for any employee to attempt to duplicate keys issued by the University. Only the Facilities Management Department (FMD) is authorized to duplicate keys. Keys issued will be marked with a distinctive stamp.
