How do I return my key?
Please return all College keys before you leave campus. Keys are returned to the Access Control Office in the Campus Safety building. The building is open 24 hours a day, and a key drop box is available at the Access Control counter.
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 the keys for you or give the keys to someone for their use.
All lock changes have been completed or are scheduled. Room keys arriving after June 25 are not eligible for a credit to the student account.
If you forgot to return your keys before you left campus, please contact the Access Control Office at AccessControl@bates.edu. The keys may be mailed to: Access Control Office, 245 College Street, Lewiston, ME 04240. Please use a padded envelope so the keys do not tear through the envelope while in the mail system.
