Security Features in Students’ Rooms

Every accommodation within the residence hall has its own lock and key or key card/ID. When using a key card, it is the student's University ID and it is encoded for the student's room only. The card and a pin number are required to open the door. If using a key, the keys are coded with core numbers rather than room numbers so that a lost key cannot be identified with a particular room. Therefore, the University of Pittsburgh strongly advises that students do not attach their IDs to their keys. Residents should also lock their doors and windows at all times and carry their keys with them.

Campus telephones are also provided in each residence hall corridor.
