Residence Hall Electronic Locks

Undergraduate housing utilizes electronic locksets (card readers) for resident rooms and community bathrooms in all of their traditional residence hall buildings.

Electronic locksets operate with a keycard and include a keypad and PIN function for additional security. Both your keycard and PIN code are required to open your room and the bathroom.

Keep these keycard/lockset basics in mind:

  • Always take your room card with you when you leave your room. The doors automatically lock when they are closed.
  • You may change the PIN number on your card to a different four-digit combination. Contact your Community Center to locate the nearest keycard kiosk.
  • Never write the PIN number on your card.

Lockset Lights

The lockset on your door uses red and green lights to indicate access status or errors. A complete description of each light pattern is available. Download now.
