If keys are lost, a $15 charge will be incurred to replace one key or $25 to replace a complete set. If the keys are found within 14 days of the order, everything but the cost of the keys will be refunded. Cracked or bent keys that are brought to the residence hall desk before they break will be replaced without charge. Students are not allowed to possess or make duplicate keys, master keys, or any other unauthorized Institute keys. Replacement keys can be ordered at the Houghton, Culbertson, or Dryer Residence hall desks.
Because our residence halls are often used for conferences, we collect all residence hall room keys during major break periods (Christmas, spring and summer break). This procedure helps to reduce key replacement costs and keep security intact. Students who neglect to turn in their keys will be charged $75.00.
