Lock Outs

Dorm and Apartment Lock Outs

For Lock-Outs in UNH Dormitories or On-Campus Apartments, call 603-862-2120.  During normal business hours these requests are handled by UNH Housing.  After normal business hours, key services will be performed by UNH Campus Service Officers.  The two requirements are 1) that you wait by your room, and 2) that you can provide some form of ID. ID can be shown once your door is unlocked.

PLEASE NOTE, Police and Campus Service Officers will not provide a key service for a room other than your own, nor will they provide access to a dorm for non-residents.  This is also the case for LOUNGES which are locked.

IF you leave property in a room and when you return the door is locked, call (603) 862-1427, and a Campus Service Officer will let you into the room long enough to retrieve your things. You will not be allowed to stay in the room, unless you have a key to that room.  If you have left property in someone else's room you may be let in only under extraordinary circumstances.

ACCESS CARDS only allow you to stay in a room after hours. It does not allow you to gain access to a building or room which is locked.

Office Lock Outs

In the event that you should lock your keys in your office, your first option should be someone else in your department. In the event that there is no one else available to help, you can call (603) 862-1427 to have someone come and open your office. The two requirements are 1) that you wait by your office, and 2) that you can provide some form of ID. ID can be shown once your door is unlocked.

Please Note that neither Police nor Campus Service Officers will allow access to an office other than your own.

Please understand that every vehicle is different and there are no guarantees that officers will be able to open your vehicle.
