    Students and members of Fike Recreation Center may rent lockers on a 6-month or annual basis for storing personal gear and other valuables while using the facilities. A limited number of day lockers are also available for use on a daily basis only.

    Location

    Full size and half size rental lockers are located in the men’s and women’s locker rooms. All lockers have an assigned lock as provided by Campus Recreation. The locks are changed whenever there is a change in locker occupancy. All locks remain the property of Campus Recreation.

    Day lockers are located in the men’s and women’s locker rooms as well as at the north end of the fitness center and along the hallway at the south end of the fitness center that leads to the climbing wall. These lockers may be used free of charge on a first come-first served basis. Patrons may check out a locker key from the Welcome Center or provide their own locks for the day lockers.

    Rental Procedure

    Patrons wishing to rent a locker may inquire about availability at the Welcome Center at Fike Recreation Center. Once all information has been entered into the locker data base and the rental fee is paid, patrons will be issued the combination to the lock on their assigned locker.

    All locker rentals end on December 31 (6 month rental) or on June 30 (6 month rental or annual rental). Renewal of a locker rental requires payment of the rental fee at the program desk before the expiration date (the next work day if the expiration date falls on a weekend).
