Student Group Locker/Storage

Multi-Use Space South (CMU 203): Student Group Locker/Storage Reservation Policies

The use of Student Unions & Activities (SUA) facilities must be in accord with SUA House Policies and Event Services Policies, specifically the Reservations - General Facility Use section.

Reservation Process Guidelines

Registered student groups in good standing with Student Unions and Activities may reserve space. Only listed officers are permitted to make reservations for SUA venues, though a listed officer may also designate student group members to reserve space on the second floor.

Reservations for second floor spaces, lockers and equipment are handled via the Second Floor reservations software (VEMS).

Storage space is available for student groups currently registered and in good standing with Student Unions and Activities with the exception of those groups who have designated space. Reservable lockers come in three sizes:

Locker dimensionLarge: Lockers 1-4
14” wide x 73.5” high x 31” deep

Small: Lockers 5-20
14” wide x 17.5” high x 31” deep

Medium: Lockers 21-29
39.5” wide x 24” high x 31” deep

Reservations are available each year starting on reservations day to registered student groups on a first-come, first-served basis via the Second Floor reservations software (VEMS). Groups can make short or long-term locker reservations.

Short-Term Reservations

Lockers #1 and #5 are available for short-term rental. Groups are allowed to reserve one short-term locker per day for up to 14 days during the academic year. 

Long-Term Reservations

Long-term lockers may be reserved for one or two semesters within an academic year. Groups are only allowed one long-term locker reservation at a time, so will need to adjust an existing reservation if they would like to change the length of that reservation.

Lockers may not be reserved beyond the academic year, and reservations open up annually to all registered student groups on a first-come, first served basis on reservation day.

Other Locker Rental Options for Campus

Lockers are also available for rental for a semester or academic year elsewhere on the East Bank, West Bank and Saint Paul campuses. Please see the SUA Info Desk website for more details. If you have questions regarding student group funding options for operational expenses such as locker rental, please contact Student Activities at
