Reporting problems

Lock Outs

Residents who lock their key in their room may check out a replacement key at the front desk. This key may only be given to the resident of the room for which the key is requested, and it must be returned immediately. For keys returned late, the resident will be charged a fee of $25 per day, to a maximum of $50. (Keys not returned within one week will be assumed to be lost, and the lock will be changed.)

If you are locked out of your room and no spare key is available or there is nobody at the front desk, please call 617-253-1500 and ask for Housing Unit 12.
