As of May 2017, the key identification system changed. University keys will no longer have the factory designated identification codes. Instead, each key receives a unique 6-digit serial number engraved on it, which will increase key security and improve tracking.
Staff who manage keys on behalf of a University department should issue and track each copy until returned to the Facilities Management Lock Shop. Keys are re-issued in the same manner. All master keys must be requested through Netbadge using the individuals' name and computing ID whom will be carrying the key.
