For the safety and security of the campus, Niagara College uses a locker rental system. Locker rentals allow us to ensure that only students are using the lockers, that lockers remain in good condition and are cleaned between use, and that locks are not left on unused lockers, reducing the number of lockers available for students. Locker rental fees go toward the upkeep and refurbishment of lockers.
