ID Access Cards

  1. All residents gain access to their building, suite (Lindens), and room via their FDU ID Card. Upon officially checking into the residence halls, residents are issued a combination number for their mailbox.
     
  2. Any resident leaving the University or residence halls prior to the end of the contract period must surrender their ID access card to the appropriate Residence Life staff person when vacating the room. Residents who lose or fail to return their ID Access Card when checking out will be automatically assessed a charge of not less than $25 for the ID access card.
     
  3. ID access cards may not be loaned, borrowed or used by anyone other than the resident to whom they are assigned.
     
  4. Lost ID access cards should be reported immediately to the Department of Public Safety. A replacement fee is payable at the Department of Public Safety.
