Locker Policy


Lockers in the Ruth Lilly Medical Library are provided for the use of School of Medicine students. Lockers are intended for temporary storage of personal items for students who do not have access to a permanent storage area on campus.

  • The School is not responsible for loss, theft or damage to personal property stored in lockers.
  • Lockers are not intended for long-term storage. Personal items must be cleared from lockers each day.  Lockers will be randomly monitored each morning for exceptions.  Items left in a locker for more than 24 hours may be removed by library staff. 

The purpose of this policy is to provide for the safe and efficient management of student lockers for the benefit of all students 


Items left in lockers:

If library staff observes that a locker has been in continuous use for more than 24 hours, a warning sticker will be placed on the locker indicating a deadline for removal of items. If items are not removed by the deadline, the contents of the locker will be removed by two library staff and placed in the library lost and found. Items not claimed after thirty (30) days will be discarded. Valuables removed from lockers such as phones and credit cards will immediately be turned over to campus police.



  • If a locker user is locked out of his or her locker, library staff can open the locker to retrieve the items. Anyone requesting the opening of a locker will be required to produce a photo ID and fill out a form before the contents of the locker can be released. Documentation of the incident will be kept for thirty (30) days.
