Bapst Library


Reserve a Locker

Obtaining a Locker

O’Neill Library has 30 lockers that can be borrowed for 24-hours (day lockers) and 150 lockers that can be checked out for an entire academic (long-term lockers). Bapst has 84 lockers that can be checked out for an entire academic (long-term lockers).

All lockers are available on a first-come-first-served basis for graduate and undergraduate students.

Where are the lockers located?

O'Neill: Day lockers are located by the stairs on the first floor. Long-term lockers are located on the west side of the fourth floor. 

Bapst: Lockers are located in the Student Lounge area. 

How do I reserve a locker?

All lockers are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Keys for day lockers can be checked out from the third-floor circulation desk. Long-term lockers can be secured by completing a locker reservation form. Once you have completed the form, you will receive an email from a member of the library staff with your locker combination code. 

For how long do I get my locker?

Day lockers circulate for 24 hours.

Long-term lockers circulate as follows:

  • Academic Year  - Fall and Spring semesters

  • Summer Session  - mid-May to mid-August

What else should I know?

Long-term lockers may not be used to store perishable food for extended periods of time, or non-charged library materials (including Periodicals, DVD's, CD's and materials from the Reference Collection).

Students who check out long-term lockers should expect to receive an email reminder 3 weeks before the expiration date. On the expiration date, any library books left in your locker will be removed from your library record and returned to the stacks. Unclaimed personal property will be held at the library for one semester before being processed as lost property.

Neither Boston College nor Boston College Libraries are responsible for the loss or damage of any material stored in lockers. We are also not responsible for unclaimed materials left in lockers after the expiration date has passed.
