Students at the kemper neighborhood desk

Kemper Neighborhood Desk


If you are locked out of your room, you should first try to contact your roommate. If your roommate is not available, go to the neighborhood desk assigned to your residential building (see list below) to receive a loaner key. The first two lockouts of the academic year will be provided at no cost. Upon the third lockout, you will be charged for a lock change.
