Key Control

Another "key" element of Facilities, the Key Control and Distribution section, is responsible for the more than 32,000 keys used by University staff, faculty, and students. A part of Customer Service, the mission of Key Control is to accurately maintain all key records and to control the issuing of all University keys in such a manner as to protect the security of University property.

Working with the Lock Shop and departments throughout the University, Key Control verifies all key requests, issues the keys, maintains computer and card files on each key, and assists with lock changes and special requests.

Since the key window is one of the first and last stops for most University personnel, public relations plays a big part in the success of the operation.
