Building Access and Keys

Facilities Services’ building access group provides access control through locks, keys, access cards and Campus Automated Access Management System (CAAMS) administration.

Service Options

Lock Maintenance

Lock maintenance includes stuck keys, lock repair and revisions to existing keying.

(FS-WORKS requires a NetID login)

Campus visitors without a NetID can report issues to the Care Team.

Eligibility

Building Coordinators and departmental Key Coordinators may request lock changes.

Lock, key and building access issues, such as broken or difficult locks, may be reported by anyone on campus.

Key Requests

The Lock Shop cuts keys for buildings, rooms, file cabinets and desks. To request keys from the Lock Shop you must mail or deliver a completed Key Request Form signed by your Building Coordinator, department Key Coordinator or another authorized person. Contact the Lock Shop at lockshop@uw.edu for a Key Request Form.

*Request forms are currently only available in hard copy format because the form includes multiple carbon copies.

All Health Sciences Building key requests go through Health Sciences Building Management (hsbuild@uw.edu).

We send file cabinet and desk keys through campus mail unless otherwise instructed. Room and building keys may be picked up at the lock shop when ready. Key pickup hours are Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. to noon, and 1 - 3:25 p.m.
