Lock Shop

The Lock Shop is responsible for maintaining all locks, keys and electronic access systems on campus. This includes cutting and issuing physical keys on campus as well as granting electronic access (a.k.a. "soft key" access) on campus. The Lockshop staff perform lock repairs, lock changes, and installations. They also repair file cabinet and desk locks, and can even open lockouts. They keep records of buildings and room keys, as well as keys issued to faculty and staff. Learn more about the Shop in this presentation.
