Keys and Locks

Key Requests

The Department of Public Safety is responsible for oversight of all key and lock change requests. In order to facilitate these requests, departments must follow these procedures:

  1. Department managers must complete a revised Access Request Form (available from Public Safety) or by going to http://publicsafety.tufts.edu/adminsvc/ and downloading the form as well as completing an Interdepartmental Requisition (IDR)
  2. Completed Access Request Forms and the IDRs should be forwarded to Public Safety:

               Medford attention Louis Galvez, 1st floor of 419 Boston Ave.

               Boston attention Lakia Blunt, 1st floor of 136 Harrison Ave.

               Grafton attention Pat Bathgate, Central Services Building.

  1. Once the lock change and/or the keys are cut, the Public Safety Administrative Services office will then notify the employee that the request is complete and ready for pick-up.
  2. The requestor then picks up and signs for the key(s) at the Public Safety office.
