You can store your backpack, books, and other materials right here in the Duke Libraries. Daily use lockers are in The Edge. Graduate students can also request long-term lockers, which are assigned annually.

Lockers for daily use

Short-term lockers available in the Edge. There are smaller and larger sizes. The lockers are located across from the Edge lounge area.

You can store items for the day in short-term use lockers located in The Edge (first floor Bostock) on a first-come, first-served basis.

Using the lockers

  • Two sizes are available.
  • Each locker has two standard power outlets, handy for charging your devices.
  • Set your own 4-digit code as the combination. We recommend using the last 4 digits of a phone number or something else you won't forget.

Locker policies

  • We check and clear lockers at 9 am every day. We take remaining items to the Staff + Consultation space in the Edge. Items retrieved by staff can be picked up 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
  • We aren't responsible for items kept in lockers. Use lockers at your own risk and remember which locker you used and what combination you set.
  • For safety and healthy reasons, please do not store food or drink in the lockers.
