Card Access

The St. Catherine University ID card gives students access to their residence hall building. Replacement cards are available at the Public Safety Office, located on the first floor of Coeur de Catherine.  There is a $5.00 replacement fee.


Students should report lost room, suite, apartment, or apartment mail box keys to Public Safety to have the lock changed or re-cored. The replacement fee is $60 per door lock and $60 per mailbox lock. Residents reporting missing keys one week before the academic year closing or upon check-out (whichever comes first) will be subject to a $100 per key charge. Once Public Safety has requested a lock re-core from Facilities, the fee is charged to the student's account. This fee cannot be reversed should the student find their lost key.

For the safety of all community members, students are strongly discouraged from keeping University ID or any other identifiable tags on their key ring making it easy for someone to identify the student's residence. Students with unauthorized duplicated keys are subject to a lock replacement charge and disciplinary action. For the safety of all residents, it is not permissible to share or loan keys or access cards to others. Students who obtain a key or card access under false pretenses or loan out their key and/or access card will be subject to disciplinary action.
