Lockers

Lockers are available for free on the ground floor at Clifford Whitworth library and on the entrance level of the Allerton Learning Space. There are lockers specifically for postgraduate research students in the PGR room at Clifford Whitworth library.

A copy of the Locker Policy is displayed next to the lockers at Allerton Learning Space and inside each locker at Clifford Whitworth. If you are unsure of anything about the lockers, please contact the library or ask a member of staff at the Enquiry Desk.


Borrow a locker

Clifford Whitworth: Please ask at the Enquiry Desk. If a locker is available we will then issue a key to your library account, provided you have your University ID card. Lockers are issued for one week. Students with support plans can issue a locker for one month.

Please note: lockers keys are only available while the Enquiry Desk is staffed (i.e. from 8am to 2am Monday-Friday, during term-time and from 8am to 7pm during holiday periods. From 12pm to 1am at weekends during term time and 12-6pm during vacation).

Allerton Learning Space: Self-service lockers are available. Use your ID card - full instructions are displayed on the unit.

Media City campus: These lockers are not provided by the library and require a £1 deposit. Please ask at the main reception desk in the Media City building to find out more about these lockers.


Locker key renewal is not possible

If you still require the use of a locker beyond one week, return your key and if other lockers are available you will be given a new one. This ensures fair distribution of lockers throughout the year.


Lost locker keys

If you lose your locker key, a £15 charge will be added to your library account to cover the costs of replacing both the lock and the key.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you have lost your locker key. This will allow us to fix it as soon as possible to enable other students to use the locker facilities.


Locker borrowing hours

Lockers are issued for one week. Students with support plans can be issued a locker for one month.

The lockers in the Postgraduate Research room at Clifford Whitworth for postgraduate research students are available for the normal postgraduate loan period of 12 weeks.


Return locker keys

Locker keys should be returned to a member of library staff at the Enquiry Desk they were borrowed from.

If a locker key is returned at Clifford Whitworth when a member of library staff is not present, please use the locker key return box on the wall next to the locker. A member of staff will check this box each day and remove the returned keys from student accounts.


Library locker storage policy

The lockers within the library are intended for securely storing your personal items.

Library staff may carry out an inspection of the lockers at any point, under the terms of the locker policy. Any library books stored in lockers which are not on your library account or are reference books will be removed and returned to the shelves, as other students may want to use them.

The locker policy is displayed next to the lockers at Allerton Learning Space and inside each locker at Clifford Whitworth.
