Sign up for the Link Locker Lottery

The Library assigns the lockers available in the Link to interested students each semester. Preference is given to students living off-campus or working on an honors/capstone project, although all students are invited to apply for a locker. Depending on the number of applications, a lottery will be used to determine which students will receive lockers. Please fill out our Link Lockers Lottery form. Entries will be accepted through midnight on September 24, 2021.
