Changes to Deposits and Service Fees for Keys, Fobs, & Cards

Effective 1 April 2017, the following changes will be enacted regarding deposits and service fee amounts for keys, fobs, and cards:

  1. Deposits & service fees will be phased out on cards/fobs for students / contractors / visitors and replaced with a flat non-refundable purchase price of $20.00. Staff & Faculty will continue to have a deposit system for cards/fobs. All existing deposits will be honoured.
  2. Cabinet key pricing will increase to $5 when a sample is provided and $15 when a key must be created by code.

All other current deposits and charges will remain in effect.

Please note that some existing deposits may be forfeited after April 1st if key/card holders are no longer active at the university, or if they are in violation of Policy AD 1.04. For full details please visit Access Control FAQ.

Managing access for a community with a peak population in excess of 20,000 people is not without its challenges. We employ a mix of mechanical (locks and keys) and electronic (access cards and alarms) devices to meet our needs. We continue to work together with community stakeholders to reach needs-based solutions that keep our primary goals in mind.
