UNITED WAY PLEDGE DRIVE: EMU has a great tradition of supporting this community and United Way is a part of that tradition. Please help us reach this year's goal of $100,000. There are six focus areas the campaign helps: early childhood care and education, school-aged youth, hunger relief, homelessness and housing, senior assistance and safety-net health. There are 3 ways you can make a donation:

  • Traditional Link: http://uwwc.unitedwayepledge.org/. User ID is your emich email address, password is "liveunited." Then, you will be asked to change your password.
  • Paper donations are also an option. Please see your United Way department representative or contact this year's chair, Kevin Kucera, associate VP of enrollment management, or Linda Moore, coordinator at 487-8892 or email at lmoore14@emich.edu.


PHYSICAL PLANT KEY OFFICE HAS MOVED: The Key office has moved to Central Operations. The key office is located on the 1st floor of the Parking Structure just of Oakwood. The hours remain the same from Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and is closed for lunch. At times there will be meetings that the key office must attend. There will be notification stating that the office will be closed and when it will reopen.

Physical Plant Key Information - The Physical Plant is a fast pace growing Department. We are consistently updating our website. Please visit and get acquainted with the many things we do for you all over campus.  We would like you to visit our frequently asked questions.   Where do I obtain a key, transfer or clearance form?  Is a lock change the same as re-keying a lock?  What is the procedure for re-keying?  What do I do to report a lost key(s)? Please log onto our website and download the updated key form. This has the updated fax number on the form. Also, did you know you have 30 days to pick up your key(s) when notified?  After the 30th day if not picked up the key will be recycled and your department will be billed $25.00 per key.  These are just a few of many questions we receive daily. It is important to keep up with the policy and procedure of the keys/lock changes and re-keying.  Any questions please contact Kaye Tobias at 487-2494 or email at Kstachlew@emich.edu.
