Keys & Security
Each student living in a residence hall will be issued a room key, and some will be issued a suite combination during the hall check-in process. A student may not lend room keys or suite combinations to any other person. Residence hall keys are not to be duplicated except by a JMU locksmith, as authorized by the Office of Residence Life. Residents will be billed for each replacement room key.
All residence halls are locked 24 hours per day, seven days per week. A student who enters or leaves a residence hall is responsible for securing the door. Propping or otherwise preventing any door from being completely secure is a serious safety violation.
Security of each residence hall requires that students lock their room and/or suite doors and keep their keys with them when they leave their room. Lost keys should be reported to a Residence Life staff member immediately. Staff members are able to unlock doors for residents; however, abuse of this service or breach of hall security may result in disciplinary action.
Students are not to admit unauthorized or uninvited persons into their residence hall at any time.
Students who live in 2-room suites (rooms that share a bathroom with an adjoining room) are not permitted to enter the other room in the suite without express permission of the suitemates.
