Members of the faculty and student body, as well as administrative officers of the College, may use facilities on the campus in accordance with regular scheduling policies. Unauthorized entry into or use of College facilities and unauthorized possession or use of keys to College buildings or facilities are violations of College policy.

All residential students are issued the appropriate keys for the room and building (this includes a room key and, depending on the building, a key for their suite, apartment or building). Some students may also receive keys to select academic or administrative buildings. Keys are not to be duplicated, loaned, or used for any purpose other than that approved in advance by the authorizing person. All students are expected to keep keys in a safe location. Lost keys are to be reported immediately to the Residence Life Office. Any lost key will require that the locks be changed; a rekeying charge will be applied to the student's account. Refer to the Residence Life website for more information on keys.

Students and other members of the Cornell community may distribute appropriate literature through campus mail, e-mail and at approved and designated places for posting such literature. Before posting literature in campus buildings, consult with the department staff in that area or the Residence Life Handbook for specific procedures. Individuals and groups posting information about services and events are encouraged to include the name of the event/sponsor, a contact person, and date of event. To guard against litter problems and defacement of College and personal property, posters may not be placed on external portions of buildings (walls, doors, windows, etc.), lampposts, trees, vehicles, and the like. 

Individuals or groups invited to the campus by administrative officers of the College, by members of the faculty, and by student recognized organizations with the approval of their sponsor may also be accorded the privilege of College facilities for speaking and distributing literature in accordance with regular scheduling policies for such purposes.
