You are the only person who may pick up your key. We do not issue keys to siblings, room mates, friends or leave in mail boxes or at security. If you are not able to arrive within office hours, you may call Security when you arrive at your dorm to be let into your room. You are allowed one no charge lock out per semester. Security may be busy with other lockouts after office hours, please be patient.
Students not returning to Campus for the Short Term 2016 semester must return all College keys by 5pm on April 17th. There is an after hours drop box to the right of the Access Control Office door for after hours returns. Keys returned after April 17th are subject to a $25 late return fee. Keys not returned or returned after the locks have been changed are subject to a $100 rekeying fee.
You are responsible for returning your keys at the end of your school year. Do not leave keys in your room. Do not expect someone else to return them for you or give them to someone for their use. If Chase Hall is closed when you attempt to return your keys, you may return them to the Security Office at 245 College Street.
If you forgot to return your keys before you left campus, please contact the Access Control Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. The keys may be mailed to: Access Control Office, Chase Hall, 56 Campus Ave, Lewiston, ME 04240. Please use a padded envelope so the keys do not tear through the envelope while in the mail system.
