      • No key (or card access) shall be lent to or shared with another individual. Violation of this rule will result in the revoking of key privileges and in some cases could lead to civil or criminal prosecution.
    • Vandal AccessKey Holder's Responsibilities
      • After-hours access is for work only. Never use your access for personal reasons.
      • After entering or leaving the building after hours, make sure the door latches behind you. Take a moment to listen to the door latch. You are entering/leaving a secured area. Make sure you maintain that level of security.
      • Do not let others into the building. Even if someone says they have left their Vandal Card or key at home - DO NOT LET THEM IN. You are only authorized to let in yourself. Always keep your Vandal Card with you at all times. Security patrolling the building will ask to see your identification.
      • If you see a door propped open, close it. No doors should be left open at anytime. This is a security, as well as fire, hazard.
      • If you see anyone suspicious or anyone vandalizing any part of the building, report it immediately. (After hours call 9-911) Help us keep our buildings in the best possible condition.
      • If the fire alarm goes off while you are in the building, leave immediately.
    • Key Return Procedures

          Name of key holder
          Vandal card ID number
          Telephone number
          A list of keys returned

      Do not mail keys! Return keys in person to guarantee their receipt at the Access Control Management Office.
