Residence hall keys belong to Green Mountain College and are assigned to individual residents for their personal use only. At the beginning of the academic year, each resident pays a $40 key deposit, which will be refunded to the student's account when the keys are returned. Residential students are issued two keys: one universal key for residence hall front doors and an individual room key. Residential students are responsible for carrying their assigned keys at all times. Keys are not to be loaned to anyone or duplicated for any reason.
Students must return keys to a Residence Life staff member upon checking out of their residence hall room. Failure to return the keys at the time of either changing residence hall rooms or vacating campus will result in forfeiture of the key deposit. Students may not change rooms and/or keys without the permission of the Department of Residence Life. Lost keys must be reported to the Campus Security Office immediately so a lock change can be done. The lost key will be replaced for a fee of $20 for each key, plus a $40 charge for changing the lock.
Room Lock Outs
Students locked out of their rooms may contact the Campus Security Office for assistance. Students will be assessed a $10 charge each time to utilize this service. Students may request up to two Campus Security assistances with lockouts each semester before being charged with key and lock change replacement fees.
