Building Access and Keys

The UConn Department of Psychological Sciences  is actively concerned for the safety of all faculty, staff and students. Safety is best achieved when members of the department community work together to promote a safe environment. The following provides guidelines for access to Psychological Sciences buildings (Bousfield, Arjona, Whetten).

Building Access/Key Procedures and Guidlines

Access/Key request for individual faculty, staff, and students must be done on an Access/ Key Request Form and approved by department head or PI.

Request for replacement keys to individuals, require the approval of the dean, director or vice president. Certain special orders will require the consideration of Physical Plant Director and the approval of the Vice President for Administration and Finance before being accepted.

All student (graduate and undergraduate) and student employee key & access requests are granted for up to a year, and due back on May 15th, or upon the student’s graduation, whichever occurs first. A request for an extension from the current due date will be accepted starting on May 1st of each year. Please choose extension request to complete.

All key & access requests require adequate justification, which will be explained on the key request form. Students may request their own keys, however the requests must be approved by the designated departmental staff member.

Additionally, the key holder is responsible for any fines associated with keys checked out to them. Fines are not to be paid by the department or with university funds. The key holder may have the fine charged to their U-Bill, payroll deducted, or pay with check or cash.
