Lockshop & Keys

The Facilities Management Lockshop is responsible for issuing and tracking all University keys and access cards, installing and maintaining all door hardware, and programming access to doors controlled by the Card Access system in accordance with the campus Key & Access Control Policy.


Key and Access Card Requests

Campus keys and access cards are authorized through the proper department/administrative Key Advisor. If you need access to a room, please go to your department Key Advisor for assistance. Typical processing time for any request is 5 business days or less. At the beginning of the semester as demand increases our processing time increases to 10 business days or less. 
Hard Key & Access card requests - can be submitted using our Key & Key Card Request Form. Please be sure to take a look at our Key Request Process Guide for more details on best practices and how to properly complete the form.

Picking Up Keys & Access Cards

Keys and access cards may be picked up at Facilities Management, Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm. For the safety of the campus community, only the individual assigned on the authorization form can pick up the key or access card and must provide a valid photo ID.


Lost or Stolen Keys 

If you have lost a key or access card, or suspect it has been stolen, please report it immediately by completing the Key & Key Card Request Form and selecting "Lost or Stollen Key" as the Key Request Context.

If you have a question, please view the Frequenly Asked Questions page. 


Keys and Building Access

It’s the responsibility of every keyholder not to let anyone without building access to enter a closed building. Exterior doors should never be propped open. 


Separating employees should turn in their Separating Employee Clearance Form and other items such as employee ID, keys, parking permit, ProCards and Travel Cards to the Cahier's Office (Student & Business Services 2nd Floor). 

Please remember to send an email to Facility Management Keys at fmkeys@humboldt.edu at least 24 hours before your separating date. Facilities will then send you an email listing all hard keys and keycards that are still issued to you for your reference.
