Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Handbook

9.6.6 Keys

Some employees may be issued University keys in the course of their employment. It is the employee's responsibility to safeguard these keys in order to maintain adequate security at the University. The duplication of keys is strictly prohibited. If your job requires you to have a key, your supervisor will request one through Public Safety and Police Services' online "Key Request Form". Upon request or when the need for said key(s) no longer exists, employees shall return their key(s) to Public Safety and Police Services.

If you lose your key, notify Public Safety and Police Services immediately. There will be a service fee for the replacement of lost keys.
