Rental Policy

Lockers in Room 116 of Watzek Library are primarily for the storage of library materials that have been checked out. Lockers are available for rental by contract to current students of Lewis & Clark College. Lockers will be distributed on a priority basis as follows:

  1. Students with physical disabilities
  2. Seniors doing theses who live off campus
  3. Seniors doing theses who live on campus
  4. Graduate students doing major research
  5. Other students doing research

Priority will be given to applications submitted by the second week the semester. Lockers that are still available after the second week of classes will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Combination locks supplied by Watzek Library personnel are the only acceptable locks for use. Food or drink should not be stored in the lockers. Signage, stickers, or other materials are not allowed on the lockers. The combination lock must be locked and remain on the locker at the end of the contract period. If a locker is not vacated at the end of the contracted date, the locker will be opened and contents removed by library personnel. Any locker that is not used in compliance with library policy and procedures will void this contract and the locker will be opened and the contents removed. Library materials will be returned to the Library; non-Library materials will be placed in Lost & Found behind the Circulation Desk.  The College assumes no responsibility for the contents of these lockers.
