Vehicle, Room & Building Unlocks
The Department of Public Safety will provide vehicle, room and building unlocking services at no charge to faculty, staff, students or anyone parked in a university parking lot. If you are in need of any of these services, please contact the Emergency Communications Center at 319-335-5022. Dispatch is operational twenty-four hours a day, three hundred sixty five days a year.
The Department of Public Safety can provide vehicle unlocks for power and manual locking vehicles for all vehicles parking in University parking lots or parking ramps. Vehicles must be parked on University property for the Department of Public Safety to provide unlocking services due to liability issues. All jump-starts are handled by the University of Iowa Parking Department.
If your keys are locked in your office, the Department of Public Safety will unlock your office to provide access. If any personal property, belongings or keys are locked in a room after business hours, the Department of Public Safety will provide access to retrieve your belongings or keys and then escort you out to lock the door again.
The Department of Public Safety will not unlock buildings without either prior notice from Space Planning or proof of a building reservation with paperwork from Space Planning in hand.
