Students will receive a key to their residence hall or apartment at the beginning of the academic year. Students are responsible for this key until the end of the term. If a student loses this key or fails to return it at the end of the term, a key charge will be added to their account. An additional fee can be added if the locks are replaced. Students should make sure the Resident Assistant or Resident Director receive their key at the time of check-out. No key should be left in a student’s room; students will be charged a lost key charge if they do not check out properly returning their key to a staff member.
