UW Facilities’ building access group provides access control through locks, keys, access cards and Campus Automated Access Management System (CAAMS) administration.
Lock maintenance includes stuck keys, lock repair and revisions to existing keying.
(FS-WORKS requires a NetID)
Campus visitors without a NetID can report issues to the Care Team.
Only Building Coordinators may request lock changes.
Lock, key and building access issues, such as broken or difficult locks, may be reported by anyone on campus.
The Lock Shop works in conjunction with Building Coordinators to release keys for their spaces.
All Health Sciences Building key requests are processed by Health Sciences Building Management.
All Housing key requests are processed by Housing Desk Services.
Key Request Form
Please return the request form digitally signed by the authorized Building Coordinator to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to open the form in Adobe Acrobat rather than your web browser. Read more about filling out and sending a PDF form with Acrobat on Adobe’s website.
Room and building keys may be picked up at the lock shop when ready. Key pick up hours are Monday - Friday during the following timeframes:
High security key - $16 each
Low security key - $6.50 each
Keys will be cut within ten business days of the request.
Facilities Maintenance manages keycard building access via CAAMS (Campus Automated Access Management System).
To request information on new CAAMS installations, contact CAAMS coordinator Ricardo Flores at email@example.com or 206-616-9548.
To request new or temporary CAAMS cards, email a Key Request Form digitally signed by your Building Coordinator or Authorized Requestor to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1-4 CAAMS cards and all fobs - $10 each
5+ of the same CAAMS card - $7 each
To authorize additional Key Coordinators, fill out a Key Authorization Form with your dean, director or chair and return it to the lock shop. If you have questions about who your Key Coordinator(s) may be, contact the lock shop at email@example.com.
Departmental budgets are required for new key cutting, building and room rekeying, and departmental equipment locks and keys.
Maintenance department budgets will cover the cost of stuck keys, broken building locks and maintenance of existing CAAMS systems.
