How to get a key

Core volunteers that need an external key can ask to be granted a key by the staff collective by sending a message to and indicating what they need the key for. The collective will discuss the matter at the next possible staff meeting. Paid interns are granted keys as needed subject to review by the staff collective. If a keyholder loses a key, they must reapply to the staff collective.

For further information on who gets keys and how check out the After Hours Access Policy. If you have a key, also read the After Hours Access Procedure.


All members of the staff collective have keys to both the external (F) and internal (I) doors in the building. Additionally, paid apprentices, other staff, and core volunteers also have these keys as needed, typically (E) or (F) and possibly (I) keys.

Some people who used to be keyholders no longer need them. Also, we were unable to adequately review all the previous keyholders. Anyone not on the list who wants a key should send a message requesting one to staff the (see above).

Lists of keyholders for doors, safes, and cabinets

E and F keyholders need to read and understand the After Hours Access Procedure.

Italic names = allotted but not handed out yet.

Note: E and F keyholders also need a PIN to arm or disarm the alarm system if they might enter or exit the building after hours. All E and F keyholders should be on the locks list.

Do not give out E or F keys without alerting Darryl or Richard.

Re-keying the locks

  • If you're re-keying the locks, check this page to estimate how many new keys will be needed. Remember to take into account non Free Geekers with keys (the landlord, user group reps, etc.)
  • It is customary for the staff management to re-evaluate who still needs keys. This will affect the number of keys needed.
  • Also, if there are upcoming needs for keys such as hirings, interns, etc. There also may be folks leaving who will add to the available pool of keys.
  • Other key requests will undoubtedly be made, so having a few extra keys made is good. (They should be kept in the safe.)
  • The keys should be numbered so they can be kept track of. The locksmith can do this. Our current locksmith (Atlasta Lock and Key) does this for no charge.
  • Before the locks are re-keyed it is very important that all keyholders be notified so that folks who need access are not locked out. This is especially important for keyholders who are not on staff, as they are most likely to be forgotten.
  • Be sure to review the List of locks.
