Commuter Lockers

Fall 2014 Locker Distribution

Are you new to Wentworth or new to commuting? Need a locker for the fall semester?

Fall lockers will become available on Monday, September 8th, 2014 at 6am (first day of classes) at the Info Hub desk located in the Flanagan Campus Center (ground floor of Beatty Hall). You must live off-campus and have your WIT ID to obtain a locker. If you have a specific location you are seeking, we recommend arriving early to ensure you get your preference.

Locker Overview and Lease Agreement

All commuter and off-campus students are eligible for a locker. Residential students may not sign up for a locker. You must have your WIT ID to obtain a locker and confirm your commuter status. Once registered, commuters will receive a combination to their locker and a contract with a list of the following policies: 

  • Lockers are the property of Wentworth Institute of Technology.
  • You must use the lock issued to you by the Student Affairs Life Office at all times. Personal locks are not permitted.
  • You must contact the Office of Student Affairs and vacate the locker prior to transferring, graduating, or when the locker is no longer of use to you. Occupying the locker during co-op, however, is permitted.
  • Please reference the Student Code of Conduct for a list of items that not permitted on campus.
  • You must be the sole occupant of the locker. Please do not share the locker or the combination with anyone else.
  • Please pay attention to posted signage on or around the lockers for any updates or issues with locker assignments.
  • Wentworth Institute of Technology is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or stolen items from your locker. If something is taken from your locker, contact Public Safety. Please use at your own risk.

Failure to comply with the above mentioned policies may result in disciplinary action. Lockers are available in Wentworth Hall, Rubenstein, Annex, Flanagan Campus Center, and Watson. Gymnasium lockers are not available through the Office of Commuter Student Programs. Occasionally lockers are moved from one area or replaced with newer ones. The Office of Commuter Student Programs will notify you of any changes.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact commuter@wit.edu or by phone at 617.989.4487.

Choosing a Locker Location

Consider the following when choosing a locker location:

  • Where are most of your classes?
  • What times will you need to access your locker (only weekdays, weekends, later in the evening)? Some academic buildings close when classes are not in session so access is limited in the late evening and on weekends. For lockers with late night and full weekend access, you should consider Annex and Beatty.
  • Where do you plan on spending the most time?
  • How are you commuting to campus (car/train/etc) and which locker location will be on your way to campus or on your way home.

Locker FAQs

1. How long do I get to keep my locker? One academic year (Fall-Summer). Your locker lasts for the full academic year (September-August). The exact dates are on the Locker Lease you signed upon registering for the locker. For the 2014-2015 academic year, locker leases are valid through August 15th, 2015. 

2. Do I need to renew my locker every semester? No. Once you register for a locker, you are able to keep that locker throughout the lease terms which always end in mid-August. For example, if you registered for a locker in September 2014, you are able to keep that locker (without sending a renewal statement) until August 2014.

3. I want to make sure I keep the same locker next year. How and when do I renew it? Locker renewal emails are sent out every July and August reminding you to do one of the following: 1) Respond to the email to renewal your locker, or  2) Respond to state that you no longer would like your locker for the upcoming year. A lack of response gives Commuter Student Programs permission to reclaim and re-distribute your locker to another student. Your response must be received by email to commuter@wit.edu or to pernaam@wit.edu no later than August 15th. Your email response should include your name, your locker location (building/locker #) and the combination.

4. I forgot my locker combination. How may I obtain it? You can contact Mallory Pernaa at pernaam@wit.edu to request your locker combination, locker number, or location. You may also call 617-989-4487 or stop by her office in 013 Beatty. We recommend keeping your locker information stored safely in your email or phone for reference.

5. My locker has been damaged or broken. Contact Public Safety at 617-989-4444 if any suspicious activity occurs including a broken lock, missing lock or damaged locker. To ensure your locker is secure, make sure to close the lock and turn the dial a few times and check it before leaving.

6. I'm not sure how to use the combination lock. Please help. To open a combination lock you will need to turn the dial to the right 3 full turns to clear the lock. After you turn the dial 3x to the right, stop on the first number in your locker combination. Turn the dial to the left one full turn and then continue turning the dial to the left to the second number in your combination. Turn the dial directly to the third number in the combination.
