In order to provide a safe and secure environment for faculty,
staff, and students, all Hendrix College keys are issued and controlled by the
Department of Public Safety.
Requests for student keys must be submitted by the appropriate
faculty or staff advisor via the Key Request Form located on the Hendrix
College website. The request will be received by the Department of Public
Safety for review and processing. Upon completion of processing, the key holder
and requestor will be sent a notice via campus e-mail that key(s) are ready for
Keys are due for return to the Department of Public Safety based
on the due date established by the faculty/staff requestor when they submitted
the Key Request Form. Keys must be returned by this date unless the appropriate
faculty/staff advisor has submitted a formal request to Public Safety to extend
the due date. Key holders are responsible for knowing when their key(s) is/are
due for return. The Business Office will send a reminder if keys are not
returned as required; do not ignore this reminder. Keys not returned to Public
Safety by the due date will be considered lost, and the key holder will be
assessed the applicable fee(s).
Lost keys (including keys not returned by the due date) will
result in the key holder being assessed a fine of $100.00 per key. If a key
holder returns their key(s) after the lost key fine(s) has/have been assessed,
they will be refunded 50 percent of the lost key fine per key returned.
keys are issued by the Department of Public Safety to Residence Life and
managed by Residence Life staff. Safety and security concerns resulting from a lost
residential room or apartment key require that the room or apartment be
re-cored and new keys be issued to residents. Lost housing keys must be
immediately reported to Residence Life.
