Each resident is issued one room key. The key is not transferable; the reproduction of keys to the halls and the unauthorized possession, loaning or distribution of any Hendrix College key is prohibited. When a room key is lost, you will be charged a fee, which will automatically cover the cost to change the room lock and key. If a new key is issued and the original key is found, no refunds will be made.
If you lock yourself out of your room, please follow these steps in the order they are listed.
- Call your roommate(s).
- Ask your RA to open your door.
- Ask another RA in the building. Between 9pm and 8am, ask the RA on duty.
- Ask your Area Coordinator. Between 8am and 5pm on weekdays, you can stop by the Residence Life Office.
- Call Public Safety at 450-7711.
Your student ID card will allow you to access the exterior door of your residential building (except for College owned apartments, Language House or Eco-House). All residence halls have been wired with a keyless card reader entry system. Tampering with, disabling, or destroying the card readers, motion sensors, and door alarms is a serious issue that may impact the safety and well being of students. Students found damaging or tampering with card readers or alarms will be subject to conduct action.
When an ID card is lost, a new card will be issued for a fee of $25.00. ID cards which have broken will be replaced at no cost, provided the student is able to turn in the pieces of the original card.
