Anyone with Library privileges may rent a locker in Regenstein Library. Lockers are rented through the Library's Privileges Office. Lockers may be rented for up to 4 quarters in a row, and may be renewed again each year. The lockers are located in the reading rooms on the A level, and on floors 2-5. You may rent up to two lockers at a time. Fees for locker rental are $10 per quarter, or $35 for four quarters.
Lockers may not be used to store perishable food for extended periods of time, or non-charged library materials (including reading room books.) Lockers will be inspected periodically for these items. If they are found, your locker privileges will be canceled for at least two quarters, and the rental fee will not be refunded. Materials left in a locker after the expiration date will be held for a maximum of six weeks. After this, unclaimed materials will be discarded or donated to charity.

CAUSES FOR CANCELLATION OF LOCKER PRIVILEGES
UNCHARGED LIBRARY MATERIALS
You must properly check out all Library items in a locker. If you store uncharged material in the locker, the your locker rental will be cancelled and you will not be able to rent lockers in the following quarters.
MATERIAL LEFT IN LOCKERS
You are responsible for clearing personal and library material (as well as trash) out of your canceled or expired locker. If you do not completely clear out your locker when it expires, we will treat the locker as an unrenewed locker, notify you that it needs to be renewed or cleared out and then discard any unclaimed materials after six weeks. We do not attempt to determine what is trash or refuse. If we find anything remaining in the locker that is not removed or retrieved by the end of the second Thursday of the quarter, we will change the combination to the locker and you will be charged the $10 processing fee for unrenewed lockers. You are also responsible for any fines or other charges on library books left in a locker.
Neither the University of Chicago nor the Library is responsible for the loss or damage of any material stored in lockers. We are also not responsible for unclaimed and discarded personal materials from expired or cancelled lockers.
