Lockers Information and Policies

Belk Library has three types of lockers available to its patrons.

Type Eligibility Location Loan Period
Wall Lockers Students enrolled at ASU 3rd floor, along the wall west of the grand stairwell One semester - Free
Study Tables with Lockers Graduate students enrolled at ASU 3rd floor, along west and northeast walls One semester - Free



All lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Assignments for wall lockers and study table lockers are made at the Library Service Desk on the 1st floor Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m., Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sundays, 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Requests for a specific locker or study table are accepted only under special need circumstances.


Lockers are secured with a key lock. In addition to any fines accumulated, a replacement fee of $50.00 will be assessed for any key not returned. A key is considered ‘lost’ if a Library staff member is required to open the locker. Padlocks or personal locks of any type are not permitted on lockers. Use of padlocks and/or personal locks will result in loss of locker privileges. Padlocks and/or personal locks will be cut off.


Failure to return the key by the due date will result in the accumulation of fines of $1.00 per day up to a maximum of $50.00.

Conditions of Use

Posting notices on study tables and/or lockers, covering the locker vents, and storing food and drink in lockers is prohibited. Violation of these prohibitions will result in the loss of locker privileges. While personal equipment, such as laptops, may be stored in the lockers, the Library and the University assume no responsibility in the case of loss or damage to personal items.

Library Materials

All library materials kept in the lockers must be properly checked out. Library staff will routinely check the lockers to verify that all library materials are properly checked out. If library materials that are not properly checked out are found in a locker, the locker will be emptied and privileges withdrawn.


Please report any problems with the study tables and/or lockers to the library service desk.

Clearing Lockers

Lockers are to be cleared by the end of each checkout period. If the assignee fails to clear the locker of all materials by the 4th day after which the locker key was due, library staff will:

  • remove library materials, checking them in and returning them to the shelves;
  • hold personal items until the 3rd day of the next semester/session, after which they will be disposed of.
  • assignee will be billed for non-returned key
