Frequently Asked Questions

Updated for Fall 2011 / Winter 2012

A: Starting in 2009, the Students' Union at the University of Regina took over the responsibility of governing the use and maintenance of the lockers on the University of Regina campus. Why have a new rental program? The following are the primary reasons for this new program:

Lockers are in need of repair.
This program was designed to generate the capital to help replace and repair damaged lockers. Currently there is no budget that helps maintain lockers when lockers are in need of repair or replacement.

There are not enough lockers on campus.

Funds are required to increase locker availability. Currently there are only 

1231 lockers for 9783 students

. This program is aimed at helping increase the number of lockers on campus so that more students can have access to one.

There needs to be a system of accountability.

This will help to stop students from damaging the lockers, leading to costly repairs.

For insurance and risk management purposes.

The University of Regina has the responsibility to know who is accessing it's space. This system will gather that information and provide for better communication between the students and the university. Should a problem arise that involves a locker, we'll have the ability to contact the renter and deal with the situation without having to cut locks and destroy property.

Abuse of the "free" system needs to be stopped.

The old "Every man for themselves" approach to lockers lead to students claiming multiple lockers, students renting out lockers to other students, and also prevented students needing specially designed lockers for those with disabilities from having access to them. This new system will help distribute lockers to as many students as possible, as well as help make reserved lockers available to students who actually need them.

Accessible lockers need to be kept available to those who need them.
Previously, nothing prevented students from taking lockers that are specially designed for wheelchair access from being taken. With this new system, these lockers will be marked and reserved so that students that need them will have the chance to rent them as well.

A: Lockers for the Fall 2011 / Winter 2012 period become available for rent starting September 2 and will be valid until April 27. Students will not be able to renew their current lockers for the next term.

A: All locker rental fees are $5 plus a $10 lock deposit. This deposit may be returned when the lock is returned to the Students' Union front desk prior to the end of the rental term. By returning your lock, you are terminating your locker rental for the term.

A: You can visit our rental site online for quick access to locker rentals or stop by the Front Desk.
For those looking to rent accessible lockers, or have special needs for a locker in a specific location, please visit the front desk and inform the staff of your request.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept for lockers?

A: Online: we accept Visa, MasterCard, and Interac-via-PayPal. To pay with debit, you must already have your debit card registered with your PayPal account. You do NOT need a PayPal account to pay with a credit card.
Front Desk: we accept cash, Visa, MasterCard and Interac/Debit at the Front Desk.

A: We have lockers reserved for students that need easy access due to a visual impairment or need a wheelchair. These lockers are located at the end of the banks of lockers and some are specially designed with lower shelves. If you need an Accessible locker, please contact the front desk with the contact information at the bottom of the page.
