Locker Request Form

Small book lockers are available to currently enrolled graduate and honors students. Locker assignments must be renewed each quarter.  Priority is given to graduate students.

Lockers are for storage of your personal items, and library materials that have been checked out.  Please do not store perishable food items or open packages of food in your locker, as they attract vermin.
