Building Access:Keys


Requesting Keys and Card Access

ODU Facilities Management is entrusted with the vital task of protecting the security of the Monarch community and property through the secure regulation of keys. For safety reasons, most campus facilities are kept locked by traditional metal keys and/or prox cards.

The process to request physical metal keys or electronic access using your ODU ID card for offices, certain building entrances, and building masters is completely done ONLINE! Paper forms for key requests are not accepted.
