With traditional package delivery, staff members typically spend a lot of time logging and organizing deliveries. These packages end up taking up valuable floor space and could remain there for a long time if a recipient forgets to pick it up or can't retrieve it during regular office hours. If packages are delivered to the recipient's door, there is the risk of the package being stolen or lost. Most residents would undoubtedly prefer a delivery system with tracking and security measures to keep their items visible at all times even if they're away from home. Lastly, it can be difficult to impossible to store perishable items that need to be refrigerated until the recipient can pick them up. But with meal kit and grocery delivery, this need is only going to increase.
Bicycle lockers are usually in outdoor locations near railway stations and the like where people may want to store bicycles securely. They are often banked together, with individual lockers shaped like an isosceles triangle for efficient and compact storage of a bicycle. This triangular shape permits the lockers to be grouped either in a radial pattern (with the sharpest points of the lockers together), or in a row in alternating orientations.
The Operator (including employees, agents, and/or contractors of the Operator, the event and the venue) and/or law enforcement officials may inspect any and all items before they are stored in a locker or the facility and may, in their sole discretion, refuse to permit storage any items that may cause a risk and/or nuisance to the Operator, other users, the storage facility, the venue or the event.
In order to rent a locker for the semester or for a year, please visit the Service Center desk in the lobby of the Recreation Center. The Service Center accepts cash (bills no larger than $20), credit (Visa, Mastercard, Discover), Ram Cash, and check (with valid driver's license or state ID). A Campus Recreation membership must be maintained during the duration of the locker rental.
The storage lockers were a “pilot,” the kind of small test that city government frequently uses to test a new or controversial idea. The city offered up the lockers for individuals to use for months-long stretches. At the time, city officials warned that “misuse of the lockers, vandalism, or other unanticipated results,” could force them to cancel the project.
