To obtain keys and/or access codes to campus doors, an electronic Key Request must be filed out and submitted to the Facilities Services Lock Shop. The designated requestor needs to complete the form and, in accordance with the CSUCI Policy on Campus Locks and Keys, obtain the signature of the department manager. If a master key is requested, the designated requestor must also obtain the signature of the Divisional Vice President.

The FS Lock Shop Work Center will confirm receipt of the KRF with an email to the requestor. FS will make every effort to process the request as quickly as possible; generally it takes 1-2 business days.

FS will send email notification to both the recipient and designated requestor when the key or access code is ready for collection. Please be aware of the importance of collecting keys or codes in a timely manner. We will hold keys for 14 days and if not collected within that time, they will be returned to our Lock Shop's inventory and the KRF will be cancelled. If the keys are still required after the 14 day deadline, a new KRF will need to be submitted.

The recipient must collect their keys or access code in person from the FS Work Center. The recipient needs to show photo identification and will be required to sign an individual key log to acknowledge receipt of each item issued to them. If the recipient relocates to another space on campus, or separates from CSUCI, all keys issued to them must be accounted for and returned to FS. The return date is noted on the key log and clearance is confirmed by our designated personnel.
