LOST OR STOLEN KEYS
Lost or stolen keys must be reported to the Williams College Lock Shop within 24 hours of the discovery of the loss or theft. A replacement key may be issued at cost to an individual without requiring an incident report through Campus Safety and Security, or a core/key change, if the key allows access to a personal office space, residential space, or commercial space, and it does not affect any shared spaces.
Any key(s) that affect more than yourself, or additional spaces, must be reported to the Lock Shop and will require an incident report through Campus Safety and Security.
Based on the factors involved, the Lock Shop, with consideration from Campus Safety and Security, will make a decision whether to replace the key or require a core(s) change. All costs incurred, including labor and materials for re-keying, shall be assumed by the individual, or department of the employee who has lost the key(s).
