Keys, Card Access, and Locks
Employee key and/or card access requests must be made to Security Services using the Key Request Form and the Security Access Request Form found on the Facilities and Operations web page. The appropriate supervisor must provide authorization for key and access card requests.
All locks, keys, electronic access cards and access codes are the sole property of the college and are issued to employees based on their need for access. The college reserves the right to change locks, keys, and access codes as needed. All lost or stolen keys or access cards must be reported to Security Services as soon as possible. All keys and access cards must be returned to Security Services upon termination of employment.
