Instrument Lockers

Locker Request Form

After you fill out the locker request form, you will then be contacted by e-mail once your locker has been assigned. You will receive your locker number and combination when you come into the Music Department Office (main floor of Old Cabell Hall) and pay the locker fee. We accept cash only. Priority is given to students enrolled in curricular ensembles or taking private lessons, so requests may not be processed until after auditions are over and lesson/ensemble placements are made--generally 3 weeks after the start of the semester. Submitting a locker request does not guarantee that you will be assigned a locker. 

Online Locker Request Forms may be submitted at any time.

Who can have a locker?

Anyone in the University community may rent a locker, but priority is given to those in ensembles or taking lessons. Simply fill out the Locker Request Form with the proper information, agreeing that you won’t misuse the locker. There are lockers of various sizes for each instrument.

When will lockers become available?

Locker Request Forms may be submitted at any time. The Administrative Assistant will sort through all of the locker requests and accommodate as many people as possible. 

Is there a fee associated with renting a locker?

Yes. The fee is $10 per semester, or $20 for the academic school year (both Spring and Fall). Lockers are available for a reduced charge of $5 during the summer. There are also penalty fees if it is found that the locker is being misused (see below). We accept cash only.

How will I find out if I get a locker and how do I find out the locker number/combination?

After you have submitted a Locker Request Form, the Administrative Assistant will email you as soon as a locker has been assigned to you. You will receive the combination when you come by the Music Office in Old Cabell Hall to pay the fee.

Can I rent a locker for the entire year, or just for the semester?

You are welcome to rent for the semester, but can also request a locker for both Fall and Spring so that your locker assignment continues throughout the academic school year. It is $10 per semester, and $20 for the academic school year.
