Electronic Locks

Several locks at S&T are controlled electronically and operate with the S&T MinerCard. Electronic locks provide greater security & control than physical keys and provide a greater level of convenience for campus users requiring more specific access needs.

Having Trouble?

First, check your card version to make sure that you have the correct version. If you have the Miner Card 2.0 version and think your card should work on a specific door, send an email to locks@mst.edu. We're here to help, and we try to respond to all requests within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.

Understanding Access

S&T has two kinds of access: manual and synchronized. Manual access is granted on a case by case basis and requires access coordinator approval. Synchronized access is connected to campus data; when your campus data updates, so does your access.

Requesting Access

To request access to a room with electronic access, reach out to your access coordinator or email locks@mst.edu. Once your access coordinator approves the request, access is typically granted within 48 hours.

PIN Application

Some locks require a card + PIN to be accessed. Visit the PIN Application to create or reset your PIN.


Physical Keys

For doors not equipped with electronic locks, all requests for University Keys should be directed to:
