Residents are issued a key that will open the apartment and bedroom door. In the event of a misplaced or lost key, students should go to the Community Desk to check out a spare key. The spare key should be returned to the Community Desk by 9:30 a.m. the next day. You may checkout a spare key three times a semester at no cost. All spare key checkouts after that will have a service charge of $50. If this key is not returned by 9:30 a.m. the next day, the key is considered lost and the student will be charged $75 for a lost key.
To check out a key, the resident must have a picture identification card. Keys are only issued to the resident of that specific room. No resident will be granted access to another resident's room for any reason.
Lost Access Cards
Access cards are for the use of Georgia State University housing residents only. Access cards open all entrance and exit gates and the building for which you are assigned only. Misplaced or lost access cards should be reported immediately to the Community Desk so that the card can be deactivated and replaced. A replacement card costs $35.
If your card is not granting access to your authorized entry points, report the problem to the Community Desk. If you cannot gain access because of a defective card, call the Community Desk or the Police substation from an outside phone. All residents are expected to carry their card with them at all times.
Failure to report a lost card that is then used to illegally enter a building or a residence hall could result in judicial actions for the residents who failed to report the loss.
Access cards are not to be given to any other person than the person to whom they are issued.
