Keys

Shared Research Space

Students who have University-approved research projects need to register the project with the PRC in order to reserve shared research space. Keys for a reserved room may be borrowed from the PRC only for the time needed to unlock or lock a door. The key must be promptly returned to the PRC. Students must leave a picture ID in the PRC while a key is in their possession. Students are responsible for making sure the door is locked when they leave the shared research space. See the key policy for reserving a room and obtaining a key at a time during which the PRC is not open.

Failure to return keys promptly may result in limiting or restricting privileges for reserving and utilizing shared research space.

Faculty Research Labs

Faculty should provide the PRC Coordinator with a list of students who are authorized to check out a key to the faculty member's research lab(s). A list of authorized students should be sent to the PRC Coordinator at the beginning of each semester.

If identified on the faculty access list, students may borrow the key for a faculty research lab only for the time needed to unlock or lock a door. The key must be promptly returned to the PRC. Students must leave a picture ID in the PRC while a key is in their possession. Students are responsible for making sure the door is locked when they leave the faculty research lab. Failure to return keys promptly may result in limiting or restricting access to the key for a faculty research lab.
