There are two types of lockers available in the Thompson Library:
Scholarly Lockers are located on the 4th floor of the Thompson Library. Lockers are allocated during Autumn semester using a lottery system and winners will be notified the 2nd week of classes. Scholarly lockers keys must be returned by the end of finals week of Spring semester to avoid fines and/or replacement charges.
Applications for scholarly lockers are available at the Thompson Circulation Desk or patrons may submit an Online Application. Applications, including online applications, will only be accepted prior to the lottery. OSU Libraries Faculty and Staff are not eligible to enter the locker lottery.
Daily Lockers are available for OSU Faculty, Staff, Students and affiliated patrons in the Alumni database and Friends members, or in the OSUL database with a valid record. Keys to lockers are available at the Oval Entrance Circulation Desk (East Entrance) and will be checked out to your Library Account. All keys for daily lockers are due before closing of the same day. Fines will accrue hourly and a replacement charge will apply if not returned after 3 days.
