Locking solution for student housing

Locking solution for student housing

In student housing, residents change constantly and keys are frequently lost. Due to high turnover rates and complicated key logistics, the management of access rights with traditional systems is difficult and expensive. iLOQ is the perfect solution for the challenges faced by student housing management and staff.

Real-time access management

The iLOQ S5 locking system is fully programmable. The access rights of any key can be quickly changed when a new student moves in or a common facility is re-purposed. And, if a key gets lost, its access rights are removed and a new key can be programmed in only a few seconds ensuring the level of security remains high year after year.

Access rights for student housing are managed with the easy-to-use cloud-based iLOQ Manager software. The placement of locks is conveniently displayed on the floor plan of the property. The software shows in real time the access data distributed to each individual key, ensuring the management of a large amount of keys (and locks) is effortless.

Easy to update (and expand)

When specific access rights change, the updated information is easy to administer and implement. New access permissions can be changed using iLOQ’s cloud-based SaaS platform and sent out. A student can then update their new access rights using a ‘key programming hotspot’ on the campus premises – even in the middle of the night. The system can also be supplemented with time-controlled lock cylinders and front door PIN-code and RFID key readers.

Efficient distribution of large amounts of keys

When many residents are due to move in simultaneously (for example, at the beginning of the school year), student housing administrators can program access rights for keys in advance. Keys can be sent out to students in good time before they move in. They can then update their access rights when it is convenient for them using the ‘key programming hotspot’ installed on the premises. If a student changes apartments, the same key can be reprogrammed with totally different access points.

One key is enough

A single iLOQ Key can be programmed with all access rights of a given property – including security locks, elevator key switches and padlocks. Reusable keys can be reprogrammed any number of times, without restrictions. One digital iLOQ key is enough for multiple points of entry.

iLOQ use cases

Digital locking powered with the push of a key

iLOQ S10 was the world’s first electronic locking system to generate energy for unlocking from the motion of inserting a key. With no batteries to be replaced, locks and keys are always operational and maintenance costs are significantly reduced.

The new features and benefits offered by the environmentally friendly next-generation iLOQ S5 ensure state-of-the-art security, efficient access management, minimized lifecycle costs and a healthy boost to the value of your property.

Matti Tarhio,
Managing Director


The iLOQ system supports the new strategy and vision of HOAS. HOAS’s vision is: The easiest and most comfortable way of living for a student. The digitally programmable iLOQ system helps shorten the queues at our worst peak times. For new tenants, we will be able to supply the key in time before the changeover date. On the moving day the old tenant key stops working and the key for the new tenant begins to operate. The iLOQ system brings relief to students’ everyday change. In addition, security of the key system is a priority to us.

Satu Varstala,
Property Manager


For us, the reasons for choosing iLOQ were, first and foremost, its adaptability and reliability. It is easy to remove lost keys from the system, access rights can be modified and keys function reliably even in the cold.
