Unit keys are issued to each resident and must be returned upon request. We recommend that unit doors be kept closed and locked at all times. Residents are encouraged to have their keys with them at all times. If a resident needs to ask for assistance in entering his/her unit between the hours of 8 A.M. to midnight, residents should call the Summit Hall office.

A charge of will be added to the residents account (price varies depending on the time of day) 8:00 A.M-5:00P.M- $20, 5:00 P.M-12:00A.M-$30, 12:00A.M-8:00A.M-$40. Lost keys will also result in charges; Front door key-$55, Mail Key- $35. Excessive lock-outs by residents may result in disciplinary action. When a unit key is lost or stolen, security of the unit for the residents become a priority. The resident whose key is lost, or not returned at the time of check out, will be responsible for the cost of a lock change and the cost of a new key. Residents are encouraged to protect personal possessions and those of other residents living in the unit by maintaining the security of room keys. For the safety and security of students living in Miner Village and Miner Heights, residents are required to immediately report missing keys or to the Housing and Residence Life Offices and to immediately turn in any Miner Village/Miner Heights keys found on the premises or elsewhere. Miner Canyon residents need to inform of a lost Miner Gold Card for that is the key and replace it immediately. Theft should be reported immediately to the University Police (915) 747-5611 as well as Housing and Residence Life office. As a precaution, students should keep their doors locked (including apartment and bedroom doors) at all times.
