Chalmers Hall Locker Reservations
Why reserve a locker online?
If you reserve your locker online before the start of the semester, that's one less thing you have to worry about during the busy first week of the semester! Students who reserve their locker online will have their name posted on their locker prior to the beginning of the semester, and students who reserve part of a double locker online will automatically recieve the contact information of the occupant of the other half of the locker in order to coordinate the purchase of a lock, etc.
What lockers are available to reserve?
Chalmers Hall is home to several hundred lockers that are available to reserve as a resource for students in the Departments of Design and Visual Art.
Lockers that are managed by the Department of Design (which are available to Design and Visual Art students) are available to be reserved online and are located in the following spaces:
- 2nd Floor Chalmers Hall (All lockers)
- 3rd Floor Chalmers Hall in the hallway next to CHAL 350, CHAL 345, and CHAL 315
- 5th Floor Chalmers Hall in the hallway between CHAL 503 and CHAL 515.
All other lockers in Chalmers Hall are reserved for Visual Art students. If you'd like to reserve a locker in a section of lockers that is not managed by the Department of Design, please visit the Department of Visual Art office in CHAL 300.
Who can reserve a locker?
Lockers that are available to Design students are also available to students in Visual Art! Students not admitted the the Visual Art or Design programs who are taking Design or Visual Art classes are also allowed to reserve a locker.
Community Standards & Rules
Students who reserve a locker managed by the Department of Design must agree to the following before they will be able to reserve a locker:
- Firearms are never to be stored in your locker. State law regarding concealed carry of firearms requires that any concealed firearm be kept inconspicuously on the person carrying it or in secure storage. Lockers do not qualify as secure storage for firearms.
- Your reservation of a locker begins one week before the start of fall-semester classes, at which time you can start using that locker.
- You will need to put a lock on your locker. The Departments of Design and Visual Art and their parent institutions are not responsible for lost or damaged property. If you are sharing a double locker with another student, you will need to coordinate with that student to get a lock for your locker and share the combination/key(s) to that lock so that you can both access your locker. Once two people have reserved the halves of a double locker, each of them will receive an email to their KU email account with the name and contact information of the other occupant of the double locker.
- You can share your locker with others if you choose, but any lost or damaged property is not the responsibility of the Departments of Design or Visual Art or their parent institutions.
- You will need to clean out your locker by 8 a.m. on Monday, May 20 of the spring semester immediately after the fall semester before which your reservation began. Lockers in Chalmers Hall are cleaned out each summer, and that any material left in your locker after the end of the spring semester may be disposed of or recycled. You will need to email ZacShields@ku.edu if you would like to keep your materials in your locker during the summer, in which case your locker would not be cleaned out after the end of the spring semester.
- Each student can only reserve one locker or half of one double locker. You should email ZacShields@ku.edu if I would like to change your locker reservation.
How to Reserve a Locker
For lockers managed by the Department of Design, students can reserve a locker for the next year online until 8 a.m. on Monday, August 12. (two weeks before the beginning of the fall semester in which the reservation is intended to begin)
Students who reserve their locker online will have their name posted on their locker prior to the beginning of the semester, and students who reserve part of a double locker online will automatically recieve the contact information of the occupant of the other half of the locker in order to coordinate the purchase of a lock, etc. Ideally, reserving a locker online will help you avoid the stress of having to find a locker during the busy first week of classes!
What if I wasn't able to reserve a locker online?
No worries! A note will be placed on any lockers managed by the Department of Design that are not reserved prior to the start of the fall semester to indicate which lockers are still available. Follow the directions on that note to reserve your locker!
