Residence keys are distributed at registration. Replacement keys can be obtained at the Student Life office for a charge, which may include re-keying of the door lock. All keys must be returned when students check out of the residence hall (normally at the end of the Spring semester). Fines will be assessed for keys not returned at this time, a portion of which will be refunded if keys are returned at a later date. Unauthorized possession or copying of keys is viewed as a serious offence and is prohibited.
