Keys/Card Access


Staff issues residents door keys and key cards to enter their assigned rooms/units. We also encode our residents' OSU ID cards to open designated doors with card readers for their assigned areas


For your safety and that of our community, we ask the following:

  • Lock and secure your residence door. 
  • Keep your keys and access cards with you.
  • Never lend or give your keys, key cards or OSU ID card to another person to use.
  • Never use another resident's keys or cards. 
  • Don't duplicate university keys.  


Lost OSU ID Cards

If you lose your OSU ID card, contact ID services to get a new one. Once you have your new OSU ID, contact Housing and Residential Life to have staff encode it with your door access.
