Keys & Swipe Cards

Requirements to Obtain Keys & Swipe Cards

Effective Monday, August 31, 2020, we will only accept electronically signed and submitted authorization forms.

To obtain a key or swipe card to campus buildings, an individual must complete an Authorization Form. The authorization form must be electronically signed by the department head. If you are requesting a master key or a sensitive area key, it must have the electronic signature of the Dean and Provost. The final approver on the form must email the signed form to for processing. Please reference the Faculty Key Authorization Flow Chart and the Staff Key Authorization Flow Chart for more information.

Please only include the building and room for which you are requesting a key.

Any person picking up a key or swipe card must present proper identification and sign the key authorization receipt, stating the key or swipe card was received.

Obtaining Keys for Faculty Emeriti

It is our policy to require requests for keys to be used by Faculty Emeriti to be approved by the Dean of the college for which the individual will be working. Keys for Faculty Emeriti will be signed out to the corresponding Dean, and the Dean will be responsible for the safe-guarding and return of the keys. The key authorization form must be signed by the Dean authorizing the request(s) and must specify the building and room(s) for which the faculty emeritus is requesting access.
