Student Lockers


The locker request form will not be available until June 1st, 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are working on a new form and improved assignment process, please check this page for updates.

Due to this we are also asking that students currently using lockers for the 2014-2015 academic year empty their lockers by May 31st. Reminders to vacate lockers are being emailed to all those who had registered for the current academic year via the online locker request form.

Current assignments cannot be held for upcoming semesters. We appreciate your help in keeping the lockers clean and available. Please contact us at extension 5-Help (212-305-4357), option 5, or email with any questions.

Locker Use
Please see additional information further below for students who are in their 3rd or 4th year at the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
  1. You must be a student currently enrolled in a program at the Medical Center.
  2. You must be taking classes at the Medical Center during the semester(s).
  3. Locker assignments are for one academic year unless the student is not taking a class at CUMC during any semester of the academic year.
    • Students who take classes at CUMC for the entire academic year must vacate their locker by the end of the academic year. You will receive an email reminder prior to the end of the year to vacate.
    • Students with a locker assignment who do not take a classes during a given semester must email to give up the locker and make it available for others. Please include:
      1. Your name
      2. Your UNI
      3. The locker location and number
      The combination will be changed before the locker is re-assigned to another student; it is not necessary to include your combination when emailing.
  4. Some programs require a locker assignment in the Black Building (see below), while others will be assigned a locker in the Hammer Building.

Black Building Locker Assignments
Due to program requirements, 3rd and 4th year Medical students must use lockers in the Black Building; other students may not use these lockers.

Students must provide their own combination lock for use with Black Building lockers.

Vacating Your Locker
Please remove all items from your locker by the end of the academic year. Due to upcoming improvements in the locker request form and assignment process in 2015, we are asking that students remove items by May 31st or earlier if possible. A reminder email will be sent to your Columbia email address before the end of the academic year. Contents left in lockers after the assignment ends will be disposed of and cannot be stored.

Locker and Combination Troubleshooting
When trying a combination for the Hammer lockers with installed locks, please be sure to:
  • Make at least 3 full turns before stopping at the first number. More than 3 turns is ok.
  • Make 1 full turn passing the first number in your combination before stopping at the second.
