Locker Request

Locker Requests

Please read all the following rules before proceeding, as changes have been made to our locker request process. 


  • Locker Requests will be accepted based on the schedule posted below. This schedule allows the request process to be as fair as possible for all students – those in need of a large locker for their primary instrument will be considered first.


  • Request periods are determined based on your primary instrument. 


    • You may not request a large locker for the purpose of housing multiple smaller instruments until after all primary instruments in need of a large locker size have been accommodated. In most cases, multiple small lockers for these instruments can be provided, and can even be assigned next to each other or in the same area!
    • If your primary instrument is not listed on a particular request period but you are in need of a specific locker because of irregular case sizes or other special accommodations, you may submit a request during the period for the locker size you need. Please explain the necessary accommodation in the comments section. 
      • For example, if a trombone does not fit in a size 5 locker and is in need of a size 8, the trombonist may submit a request during the size 8 request period. 
      • If you are in need of a locker that is larger than the standard for your instrument size, please consider sharing the locker with another student that you trust and submit a joint request.
    • Once the request period for a particular primary instrument group passes, the remaining lockers of that size will become available for all students to request on a first come first serve basis. The Music Office cannot guarantee a locker of a particular size once the prioritized request period passes. 


  • If you submit a request during an incorrect period and / or it does not follow the above guidelines, it will not be considered. 


  • Please refer to the below Locker Count for current locker availability. The Count will be updated every few days with the remaining lockers available for each size. If the counter displays 0 for any given size, we unfortunately cannot provide a locker in that size at this time. 
    • Due to extra steps being taken with regards to COVID-19, no one will receive their locker assignments until the beginning of the semester. However, the locker count will continue to be updated so you have the information you need to make a proper request.
  • If you plan on borrowing a UConn instrument for the semester, please take out an instrument loan BEFORE requesting a locker here. Please store the UConn instrument in the locker it was assigned to, and store other belongings there if you can. If you still are in need of a locker for another instrument at this point, please submit the following request for that instrument.
