Lockers, Classrooms, & Study Spaces

Library Lockers

Lockers are located at the west end of the stacks on Levels L1 and L2 in Chalmers Library. Lockers on Level L1 may be reserved for one week by anyone at Kenyon on a first-come, first-served basis. Those on Level L2 will be assigned to students who apply for semester-long use of a locker.  

First priority for assigned lockers is given to juniors, seniors, students reading for honors, double majors, and students registered with SASS who require accommodations. First-year students' and sophomores' applications for assigned lockers will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis after the application period for juniors and seniors ends. The locker application form opens at the beginning of each semester, and will remain accessible until shortly after the drop/add period ends.

Instructions and other information about library lockers may be found in the FAQ.
