(You use your Wildcat ID card to access the Key Box. It can take up to a week, especially in the beginning of the semester, for your card to be programmed.) 

Please be responsible and follow the rules. The Key Box is monitored so please make sure that you follow the rules and are considerate to other users. Students who do not will lose their access and may be subject to other disciplinary actions.

Key Box Rules:

  1. Students will be issued access only to rooms they are authorized to use (permission to use the grand piano practice rooms and the percussion rooms can only be granted by the piano and percussion faculty).
  2. Students may not check out more than one key at a time from the key box.
  3. Students are not allowed to check out a key for the day, week, month, semester, or year. Users who hold onto their key for an extended period will lose their access and may be subject to other disciplinary actions.

If your key is lost or stolen, you must report it immediately. Replacement fee is $100, regardless.

How to Use the Key Box:

  1. Slide your Wildcat ID card.
  2. Open the box and select a key from the lighted hooks and close the box.
  3. After you have used the practice room, you must lock it before returning the key.
  4. Repeat step #1 and return the key to the hook you took it from and lock it into the box by turning it and close the door.

VERY IMPORTANT: Keys that are not locked into the box upon return will show as still being utilized. If another user selects the same key and it is lost, you are responsible for it, as it was not properly returned when you first checked it out.
