2. How much is a locker and why do I have to pay for it? The locker fee is $12.50 per semester. You can rent the same locker for one, two or three consecutive terms. The proceeds from locker rentals are used to administer the program. The program provides student employment at the three campuses, and covers locker upgrades and maintenance.

3. How do I pay for my locker? Locker rentals are accessed through your STU-VIEW Open New Browser Window account, so if you have a credit card you can pick your locker and pay online.  Once your payment is made, you will receive an email detailing your transaction, your locker number, and its location. Cash and debit payments can also be made by visiting the Student Service Centre. 

4. What happens if I get to my new locker and there is already a lock on it? If you get to your locker and it has been taken, this likely means that someone has bypassed the system and has taken the locker without paying.  When this happens, it causes a lot of confusion and wasted time for students.  The first thing to do is notify a locker administrator by visiting the Welcome Desk. Do not cut the lock yourself—we will remove the lock for you and empty the locker. DO NOT put your lock on a locker that is not assigned to you, it will be cut off.

5. What happens to the items you empty from a locker? All items removed from a locker will be kept with your campus locker administrator for 10 business days. After that time, we will donate food items to Lifeworks for the college food bank, and donate clothing items to charitable organizations such as the Salvation Army. Any other items will be discarded.

6. Can I share a locker with a friend? If you choose, you may share your locker with a friend—but remember that whoever signs up for the locker is responsible for the locker and the college assumes no responsibility for lost or stolen goods.

7. What happens if I get to my new locker, but the door doesn’t work or it’s damaged? If you discover that the locker you have been assigned to is in disrepair, contact the locker administrator as soon as possible.  We will have your locker repaired or assign you a new one. Be sure not to wait too long—otherwise, there might not be another locker available for you.

8. Who decides which locker I get?  Each program within the college has specific lockers assigned to it, so that students can have lockers on the right campus and near their classes.  The locker system is connected to the college database, so it automatically shows you a list of lockers available to you, once you’ve logged into STU-VIEWOpen New Browser Window

9. What if I get to my locker and I don’t like it? Can I switch? To avoid this happening, write down a few numbers from the ones STU-VIEW Open New Browser Window provides you with and walk through the area to see which one you like. Students can visit the Welcome Desk to switch their lockers with proper student identification. The contents of your old locker must be moved into your new one as soon as possible as it will become available immediately to other students.

10. If I’m enrolled in a program that’s longer than two semesters, can I keep the same locker? Once you have been assigned a locker, it is registered to your name.  If you want to keep your locker for the following year, all you have to do is log into the locker program in STU-VIEW Open New Browser Window and renew your locker.  For example, you can book a locker for your third semester while you are still in your first semester.  Don't wait too long, though, since your locker will be available to other students for rent after your rental term expires.

11. What if I want my locker for another year, but it’s already been booked by someone else? Before the start of a new semester or academic year, students already renting lockers will have a few weeks to renew their lockers for their following semester.  After this window passes, however, all the lockers that have not been renewed will be made available for all students to rent.  If you want to be sure to keep your locker, make sure you renew it before the end of your rental term. If it is taken you will have to move your belongings to your new locker as the lock will be cut.

12. I logged in to STU-VIEW Open New Browser Window, but why can’t I get a locker? The locker service opens for new rentals two weeks before the first day of class. There are a limited number of lockers at the college and groups of lockers are assigned to each program.  So if you can't get a locker, it likely means that all of the lockers assigned to your program have already been rented.  If this happens, go to your campus Welcome Desk, notify a locker administrator and ask if there are any lockers coming available, or if there’s a chance for you to get a locker assigned to a different program.

13. What happens if I decide I don’t want my locker anymore? Can I get my money back? If you decide you don't need your locker you can cancel by visiting the Welcome Desk. However, if you decide to cancel more than 10 business days after the semester start date, you will not receive a refund.

14. What happens if someone breaks into my locker? If someone forcefully enters your locker, it is a criminal act and needs to be reported to Campus Security as soon as possible. The safe recovery of your items depends in large part on how quickly you report the theft. If you are sharing a locker, be sure to let the person you are sharing it with know what has happened.

We advise that you never keep things such as cell phones and wallets in your locker. George Brown College assumes no liability for the loss of any items stored in lockers.

15. Does the college have the right to access my locker without my permission?
The college reserves the right to access lockers at its sole discretion if there is a suspected security risk or there is an environmental concern such as pest control or odours.  Security has the right to enter a locker at anytime should they suspect it contains items that put the college environment in danger. Any criminal activity will be reported to police.  The college is required to provide police with access in the event of a criminal investigation.
