» Keys Policy
Unit keys are issued to each resident and must be returned upon request. We recommend that unit doors be kept
closed and locked at all times. Residents are encouraged to have their keys with them at all times. If a resident
needs to ask for assistance in entering his/her unit between the hours of 8 A.M. to midnight, residents should call
the Summit Hall office. Lock-outs between the hours of midnight and 8 A.M. require contacting the residence Life
Assistant on Duty by calling (915) 525-1452. All residents will be required to show ID to be assisted with a lock-out. A
charge of will be added to the residents account (price varies depending on the time of day) 8:00 A.M-5:00P.M- $20,
5:00 P.M-12:00A.M-$30, 12:00A.M-8:00A.M-$40. Lost keys will also result in charges; Front door key-$55, Mail Key-
$35. Excessive lock-outs by residents may result in disciplinary action. When a unit key is lost or stolen, security of
the unit for the residents become a priority. The resident whose key is lost, or not returned at the time of check out,
will be responsible for the cost of a lock change and the cost of a new key.
Residents are encouraged to protect personal possessions and those of other residents living in the unit by maintaining the security of room keys. For the safety and security of students living in Miner Village, residents are required to immediately report missing keys to the Residence Life Offices and to immediately turn in any Miner Village/Miner Heights keys found on the premises or elsewhere. Theft should be reported immediately to the University Police (747-5611) as well as Residence Life office. As a precaution, students should keep their doors locked (including apartment and bedroom doors) at all times.
MISUSE OF ROOM KEYS AND IDENTIFICATION CARD
Miner Village unit keys are issued to the assigned occupant of that unit only. Lending a key or the Miner Gold Card
for gate entrance to any other persons is not permitted. It is a violation of state statutes and university regulations to
duplicate a key to any door of a unit or bedroom.
