Locker policy:

The Academic Technology Commons is happy to provide lockers for secure short-term storage of patrons’ personal items. These lockers are located on the first floor of Pius Library, in the hallway that leads to the Vatican Film Library and public restrooms.

Patrons may store items on a daily basis and should remove all items from their chosen locker when leaving the library. Daily-use lockers will be emptied on a routine basis, which will be announced using the library PA system when possible. The Library reserves the right to check any locker at any time. Any items that are left in a locker and removed will be held in Lost & Found, located at Patron Services near Einstein’s Bagels. Any such items that are not retrieved by the owning patron will be given to DPSEP to be catalogued. The Academic Technology Commons and Pius Library are not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items. For any questions on using a daily locker, please call the Academic Technology Commons Help Desk at 314-977-3103.

Patrons are encouraged to temporarily store unneeded items in a locker while using the Academic Technology Commons and Pius Library. Perishable food items or library materials that are not checked out to a patron should never be placed inside the lockers. Any items left in a locker will be placed in Lost & Found as mentioned above, and any food or drink will be disposed of.

Inside each locker are instructions on how to lock and unlock it by setting a four-digit passcode.
