Keys and Lock Outs

Keys

  • All residents are issued a key to their individual bedroom.
  • Your student ID  (with pin code) will open the e-locks for your main entry door(s).
  • No one may check out a key to a room other than their own.
  • Never give your key/ID and PIN to someone else.
  • You must always carry your key and ID with you.
  • Always lock your doors.

Lock Out Policy

  • The first three times you are locked out are considered a courtesy* service to you. After your third lockout, you will be charged a $10 fee per lockout. This fee will be billed directly to your UCSD student account. 
  • Courtesy keys are checked out from the Marshall College Residential Life Office.
  • Please return the courtesy key/key card issued to you immediately after a lockout or you may be billed for a key replacement. You must return key within 15 minutes.
  • It is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct to duplicate University keys and violators will be subject to disciplinary action. No one may check out a key to a room other than his or her own and never give your key to someone else. For your convenience and security, always carry your keys and ID with you and LOCK ALL YOUR DOORS.

Lock Out Courtesy Services

Between 9 AM and 9 PM weekdays

  • Stop by Marshall Residential Life to check out a courtesy key/key card.

Between 9pm and 8 AM weekdays

  • If you are locked out contact 858-534-4357(HELP)

Weekends

  • Call the RA on-duty and they will meet you at Marshall Residential Life to assist you.

Lost key

  • If a key is lost or misplaced, the lock will be changed and the key(s) will be replaced.
  • There is a $10 replacement fee for a lost or misplaced suite bedroom or apartment bedroom key.
  • For broken/bent keys, there is no cost to replace the key as long as you are able to provide the malfunctioning key.

Tips on Residential Key Success

  • For your convenience and security, always carry your keys with you and LOCK ALL YOUR DOORS. Being locked out is no fun, a waste of time and can get expensive!
  • There is a $10 replacement fee for a lost bedroom key.  For the safety of you and your roommates, you must report a lost key to your Residential Life office immediately. 
  • Remember that it is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct to duplicate University keys and violators will be subject to disciplinary action.
  • No one may check out a key to a room other than their own. Attempts are also considered a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Make sure you NEVER lend your key or key code to someone else, again for obvious safety and security reasons. 
  • Never prop your front door of your suite or apartment, especially using the deadbolt to keep it open. The e-locks are easily damaged this way and cost thousands to replace. In the event that your e-lock is damaged by negligence and abuse, you and your suitemates/apartment mates will be billed to cover the replacement costs.

If you are locked out over a holiday or break, you may be directed to the UC San Diego Police Department (UCPD).  You may be charged up to $10 for this service, even if it is your first lockout. Lockouts can generally be handled within a few minutes but you may be asked to wait up to an hour or longer.
