Keys F.A.Q.

How do I get keys for CWU buildings?

To obtain keys to CWU buildings, you will need a completed "Key Authorization Card", completed by the department secretary or a supervisor for students. Bring the completed card, and your CWU connection card to the Lock Shop in the Jongeward Plant Operations building to pick up your keys.

Where is the Lock Shop?

The lock shop is located in the Jongeward Plant Operations building at 205 E. 11th Ave. (corner of 11th & Wildcat Way.)

What do I do if I loose my keys?

The loss or disappearance of University keys should be reported to the Lock Shop and to your supervisor, chair or director immediately.  The Lock Shop can be reached by calling 963-1551 (during business hours.)

Public Safety and Police Services (campus police) should also be contacted because lost keys are often returned there.  The campus police can be reached at 963-2959 (during business hours.)

What should I do if I get locked out of the building?

CWU Faculty, Staff, or Exempt Employee

If you are a CWU employee (faculty, staff or exempt) call Facilities at 963-3000. Often times a custodian can unlock the building or room.
