Locker and Instrument Checkouts

Instrument lockers within the McIntyre Music building are available for students. Students needing lockers and/or instruments must do so with Allen Larsen, Music Department Hall Manager, in his office, room 146 or by using the online Locker and Instrument Checkout form.

A minimal fee for locker use will be charged to your student account. You are responsible to know and understand the Locker Check Out / Return Polices so please be sure to review them in the undergraduate handbook.
