The Lock Shop is responsible for maintaining all locks, keys and electronic access systems on campus. This includes cutting and issuing metal keys ("hard" keys) and granting electronic access ("soft" keys). The staff perform lock repairs, lock changes, and new lock installations. They also repair file cabinet and desk locks, and can open locks even if you've lost the original key. They maintain a database to track all buildings, locks and keys issued on campus.
