Key Policy

How do I order keys?

The first step in ordering a key is to talk with your Building Manager. The Building Manager will be the contact to fill any key requests. Building Managers may require you to send an e-mail to them requesting a key(s). Each department may have additional rules that you must follow in requesting keys. Each building manager can give you those departmental requirements. The Building Manager then sends an email request to the Lock Shop requesting key(s) along with the People Soft number and doc ID number for billing the cost of each key.

How do I know when keys are ready?

The Lock Shop personnel will deliver all keys to the requesting Building Manager. They will then contact the requestor about picking up the key(s). Each department has guidelines about signing out and picking up keys.

Will I need to show ID when I pick up keys?

Building managers will require you to show your Georgia Tech ID before issuing a key.

What do I do with the keys when I no longer need them?

All keys should be turned back over to the Building Manager for that building.

If I am a contractor/vendor for GA Tech, how do I get a key?

All contractors must have a project manager or building manager come with them or send an e-mail to the Lock shop approving a person and company to check out temporary keys. The Lock shop has a form for the contractor to fill out and sign making them responsible for returning all keys to the Lock shop. If the keys are not returned, the company will be charged for the cost of material and labor to re-key all doors affected by the keys that are not returned.
