Lockouts

Dorm and Apartment Lockouts

BEFORE you call to have your room opened, check with your key desk to see if they're open. Key Desks are located in Stoke Hall, Devine Hall, Christensen Hall, Gables B Building, Woodsides Community Building, and the Forest Park Office. IF the desk is closed OR you are not properly dressed you can call 862-1427 and ask to have your room unlocked. The two requirements are 1) that you wait by your room, and 2) that you can provide some form of ID. ID can be shown once your door is unlocked.

PLEASE NOTE if you are a Gables resident and you have locked yourself out of your room, you must contact the on-duty apartment manager. Neither Police nor Security will unlock your room. They will however unlock your apartment.

ALSO, Police and Security will not open a room other than your own. The only exception to this is in the event that an alarm clock is going off in a room with no one there. If this is the case, you must notify someone from your hall/apt staff, and they must call 862-1427. This is also the case for LOUNGES which are locked.

IF you leave property in a room and when you return the door is locked, call 862-1427 and someone will let you into the room long enough to retrieve your things. You will not be allowed to stay in the room, unless you have a key.

ACCESS CARDS only allow you to stay in a room after hours. It does not allow you to gain access to a room which is locked.

Office Lockouts

In the event that you should lock your keys in your office, your first option should be someone else in your department. In the event that there is no one else available to help, you can call 862-1427 to have someone come and open your office. The two requirements are 1) that you wait by your room, and 2) that you can provide some form of ID. ID can be shown once your door is unlocked.

Please Note that neither Police nor Security will allow access to an office other than your own.
