Common questions about locker rentals

How do I rent a locker?
To rent a locker follow these steps: Make sure you have a valid OCAD U Student ID card and bring $30.00 cash to Facilities & Studio Service office located at (MCF 220) 51 McCaul Street, Level 2.   

How much is a locker and why do I have to pay for it?
The locker fee is $30.00 for the locker rental for two consecutive semesters during the Fall Term and during the Summer Term from May until August of the same year.

When is the deadline to clear-out lockers for the 2019/2020 term?                       The deadline to remove all of your items out of your locker is May 5,2020 by 4 PM, not exceptions. Unfortunately, we do not have storage available to keep items that are left in your locker after the deadline.

What happens if I decide that I don’t want my locker anymore? Can I get my money back?
If you feel that having a locker is really not as useful as you thought it would be, you can cancel your locker by visiting the Facilities & Studio Services office. However, if you decide to cancel ten (10) business days after the semester has commenced, you will not be refunded the $30.00 you have paid.

What if someone breaks into my locker?
If someone forcefully enters your locker, it is a criminal act and needs to be reported to Campus Security located at (MCF 215) 51 McCaul Street, Level 2, as soon as possible. The safe recovery of your items depends in large part on how quickly you report the theft. If you are sharing a locker, be sure to let the person you are sharing it with know what has happened. We advise that you never keep cell phones, wallets or cash in your locker. OCAD University assumes no liability for the loss of any items stored in lockers.
