Forgot to Turn In Your Key?

If you get home and realize that you forgot to turn in your room/apartment key, mail it back to us.  Padded envelopes are recommended. Keys packaged in a plain envelope are often missing upon arrival because the postal machine tears through the envelope.

We must receive the keys, otherwise a lock change will be ordered for the room and the charge will be applied to your student account.
