Locker policy

Locker facilities in the Tisch Library total 355 units and are located on Level 1 and G of the library. Lockers are equipped with combination locks for security purposes. All combinations are changed at the end of each semester and assigned on a first come first assigned basis. A new application is required each semester for locker renewal and must be submitted in writing using the Application for Locker form. Upon request, lockers on Level G will be assigned only to graduate students and will be assigned from September-August.

The Library inspects lockers regularly and reserves the right to open lockers and remove items that violate our policy. However, library staff will not retrieve materials from lockers at your request. The use of an additional personal combination lock is NOT permitted. In the event that you need the combination to your locker you can obtain that information from the Administration Office Monday-Friday during the hours of 8:00AM– 5:00PM with a valid Tufts University Identification Card (NO EXCEPTION).
