Key Security

During the course of the past 2 weeks, the Housing Division, working with the Best Lock Company has changed all of the locks and keys in use in on Grounds Housing.  This change was to purchase a new key system for which the UVa Housing Divison has an exclusive patent on.  This means that we are the only ones that have this lock system and the key blank that works with it. 

As you move in, it may be that your key might feel a little stiff or tight has you unlock your door.  If that is the case, make sure that you fully insert the key and jiggle it around a little before assuming that it doesn’t work.


We hope you'll find helpful information on the Housing application and assignment process. Send us questions at and we'll answer them here.
