I signed an individual lease at a Gainesville apartment and I will be getting random roommates. Will I receive a separate key for my front door and my bedroom when I move in?

Most student communities that have roommate matching and individual leases will give you three different keys when you move in: a front door key, a bedroom key, and a mailbox key. Some places will have an access card or a remote for entry to the communities’ amenities, such as the game room and fitness center. For some of the communities with shared bathrooms, you may also receive a separate key for that.
