Booking of student lockers As of August 2015, the system for booking student lockers (found on the first floor near the main entrance) has been renewed. Hereafter the booking is made electronically for one academic year at a time and the lockers are emptied before summer. The student lockers have been refitted with a new system for locking them, which means that you now can lock them with your own padlock. How do I book a locker?To book a locker, click here.
