Since the Rutgers Camden residence halls are a home away from home for adults, we believe in fostering an environment of responsibility. As such, residents are expected to carry their keys and ID with them any time they leave their room, exiting the building or not. So that this privilege is not abused, the following policy is in effect.

  • The resident should first contact their roommates and have them bring the ID to the resident, if the ID is in the apartment.
  • Come to the Welcome Desk to complete an official lockout. The RSC/RA will escort the resident to their room with the master key and unlock the door for the resident.
  • No ID or ID failure would need to be resolved during the hours Impact Booth is open. If not, then the resident is issued a temporary front door key. The resident must obtain a new RUID card and return the front door key by 4:00pm the following business day.
    • A $75 fee will be applied for failure to return the temporary key on time (the
      cost of a replacement key).

The following are the service fees associated with multiple uses of the lock-out service when provided by the OHRL or any of its staff:

  • 1st time—————————-courtesy
  • 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc. time——$20.00

Note: Lock-out service requests between 12am and 8:30am are all done for a charge of
$25.00, after the first courtesy service.
