Key Policy

Keys will no longer be accepted for return at the gatehouse. Keys can be deposited in the campus mail slot at the campus post office in Crozier-Williams at any time. There will be a supply of envelopes there.

People turning in keys must record their name, building and room number on the envelope, place the key in the envelope, seal it and deposit in the campus mail slot.

Campus community members failing to turn in keys when required are still subject to a $25.00 charge. This change will help to make it easier for community members to turn in their keys and relieve congestion at the gatehouse. 

Lost and found items, as well as ticket appeal forms, are found at the Campus Safety office in Nichols House, south campus.

Parking violation appeal forms may also be picked up at the gatehouse.

New Camel Card office opens in 2014

Beginning in January, 2014, College community members should go to the new Camel Card office in the College Center at Crozier-Williams for:

  • keys
  • motor vehicle registration and parking tags
  • Camel Cards 

The new Camel Card will give students access to dining halls, their declining balance and doors. This Camel Card will serve as their College ID and will unlock the exterior door of their residence hall and any other buildings to which students may have access. 

In addition to the convenience of using a single card for dining and building access, the new Camel Card system will also allow students — or parents/guardians — to add funds to their declining balance account online, eliminating the need to visit the cashier window. Students will also be able to use the new Camel Card at the Bookshop. Instructions for online deposits and other information about the new card will be issued in a future email and posted online. 

The Camel Card office is open from 9 to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and may be reached at 860-439-2250 or by email at
