How do room changes work with my FLASHcard?

If you are changing rooms into a room with a new lock, your FLASHcard will work on your new lock. After an hour after the room change is approved, use your card on the new room lock, it will deny you and then sync. After 20 seconds or so, try again and your card should work on the new lock. Still having issues? Get a temporary key for the new room at your area desk.
If you are changing rooms into a room with an older style lock, check out a temporary key for the new room at the area desk. You will receive a new room key for the new room and your FLASHcard will stop working on your old room once the room change is completed.

When will the locks in my hall be replaced?

For Fall 2017, the locks in the Centennial Court and New Front areas have been replaced. We will replace more buildings every summer with an estimated completion date of August 2019. At this time, the list of buildings being replaced next summer is not yet finalized.
