Don't carry heavy books and bags around campus - use a locker!

Exam support: free lockers on campus

Canterbury campus

Additional free lockers will be available in the Templeman Library's Welcome Hall from 08:00 - 21:00 during the exam period.

These lockers will be available for students to use for the duration of their exam only. Go to the Welcome Desk with your KentOne card and staff will help you find a free locker to use.

You'll need to retrieve your belongings before 21:00. Items left in lockers beyond this time won't be available until 09:00 the following day. 

Medway campus

Free lockers will be available in the Medway Building during the exam period. 

Located along level 1 corridor, just beyond the M1.22 seminar room, on the right-hand side, these lockers are all keypad access, allowing students to use them without the need to contact staff. Allocation is on a first-come-first-served basis. 

Should you require assistance, please visit the Medway Building Reception for support.

These lockers are open to all no matter what subject you're studying or what college you're in. Your academic school may offer lockers too, so make sure to check with them.
