Keys and Card Access


FOBs/keys can be collected from the Resources Office – room 201, between 8:45am and 4:30pm Monday – Friday and from PAC Resources/Technical Staff up until 8pm. FOBs/keys must be returned immediately after use;

FOBs/Keys can only be issued to persons as listed in the booking – and are to be used and returned only by the person who signed for them. FOBs/Keys cannot be kept for multiple bookings without prior approval. Failing to return FOBs/keys immediately after use, handing FOBs/keys to other persons, leaving FOBs/keys unattended or misplacing FOBs/keys can result in access restrictions.

Late return fines also apply to the late return of FOBs/keys. This is set at $5.50 per day (incl. GST) and is calculated from the 7th University working day after a loan period expires (unless an extension is approved before the expiry date by the staff member who was a signatory to the Loan Agreement). 

Note: Security is not authorised to provide access. It is the student’s responsibility to collect FOBs/keys from the Resources Office (room 201).
