In general, University buildings are keyed to master systems, with sub-master systems as required by the unique uses and occupancy of the building space. Master keys are available only to appropriate authorities. Mechanical rooms are keyed to maintenance master keys and custodial rooms to custodial master keys. This system is necessary to provide for security of people and property, to provide access in case of emergency and to provide routine access for maintenance workers.
Any departure from standard master keying systems requires approval of the Associate Director, Department of Public Safety. Requests should be forwarded through Facilities Management—Building and Landscape Services Work Control Center by the collegiate dean or appropriate vice president for review and action.
