Employees are issued keys to offices and buildings for purposes of performing their assigned duties at these locations as needed.  The keys are to be used only for the performance of assigned duties and may not be used for unauthorized admittance to a building or office nor loaned to others except as approved by the employee’s supervisor.  Unauthorized use of official keys may result in disciplinary action against the employee, including arrest for trespassing and dismissal from the employment of the University.  Official keys may not be duplicated by the employee.  An employee must report lost or stolen University-owned keys immediately to the Locksmith in the University Police Office and to the immediate supervisor.

The employee must sign a receipt for the keys issued and must return them as part of exit procedures upon his/her separation from the University.
