Rate change

Fees for keys and CAAMS cards are going up for the first time since 2017. Effective March 1, 2024, the new rates will be $25 for each CAAMS card or high security building key. Standard keys will cost $15 each and discounts for higher quantity orders will be discontinued.

UW building access is controlled through the Campus Automated Access Management System (CAAMS) as well as individual locks, keys and access cards. Exterior doors for some buildings are also locked and unlocked manually according to the specific open hours of the building.

Common requests:

  • If you are locked out of your building and need one-time access, please contact the UW Police Department through their non-emergency number: 206-685-UWPD (8973).
  • If you want to make changes to a building’s access hours, see the Changes to building hours service option below.
