JD Locker Allocation in Allard Hall

There are 442 small lockers in the basement of Allard Hall available for use by the Faculty’s ~600 JD students. These lockers are allocated by application every September utilizing procedures developed by the Allard Law Students' Society (ALSS) and Student Services. Students who seek a locker after the September allocation should contact the law school Reception to inquire as to whether there are any lockers available. There are ~10 day use lockers available to all Law students on a daily basis and are first-come first-serve each day.

Reminder: all students, including those with priority locker access, must apply/re-apply to the locker lottery every September. Lockers are assigned for the September-April period. JD students who are taking summer session classes and wishing to keep their locker over the summer should contact Reception.

How to Apply for a Locker - Deadline: Noon on Wednesday, September 5

JD students interested in applying for a locker for the 2017-2018 academic year should review the Locker Allocation Procedures below and then apply by completing the ONLINE APPLICATION. Applications must be submitted by noon on Wednesday, September 6.

Graduate student lockers are available in the Graduate Lounge and graduate students should contact the Graduate Law Students' Society for more information.

Locker Allocation Procedures

Priority for Lockers

Students with a health condition who would benefit from priority locker assignment will be prioritized in the locker allocation process.  Students with questions about receiving a priority locker should contact Assistant Dean, Students Kaila Mikkelsen by the application deadline.

Locker Allocation

Allard Law Student Services will assign lockers to JD students (after students with health conditions requiring lockers are accommodated).  Students who had lockers over the summer or in the 2016-2017 academic year must re-apply if they are seeking a locker for the 2017-2018 academic year.  Students may not be reassigned the same locker or locker location.

In the event that the number of students seeking lockers exceeds the number of available lockers, Student Services will conduct a random lottery to assign lockers to students. Students may elect to apply for a locker as a single or apply as a pair to share a locker. Last year, all students were able to receive a locker without sharing and this year, if students apply as a pair and there are enough lockers for everyone then all students will receive an individual locker.

Given the limited number of lockers, the following students are discouraged from applying for a locker or, if they do apply, are encouraged to apply as a pair:

  • Students on exchange for one or more terms
  • Students participating in an off-site clinic or externship
  • Students who live close to the law school
  • Students who have access to office space in Allard Hall

Locker Assignment Notification

Student names and corresponding locker numbers will be posted in the basement locker area within a week of the application deadline. Students should note their locker number and place a lock on the assigned locker. Students must provide their own locks.
