  • 1.  Lockers - Rental Software

    Posted 07-30-2021 12:20
    Hello All,

    We are looking for a software platform to manage our Locker Rental Program. We have lockers in several of our academic buildings that we rent (per term or per academic year) to our students and staff. 

    We would appreciate any recommendations. 

    Please reply to this thread or feel free to email me at

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Kristine ~

    The University at Buffalo Student Union utilizes our building scheduling software, EMS, to manage our locker rentals.  We have roughly 300 lockers in three buildings.

    I would grade our system about 80%, however, it was free, it works for reporting, keeping contact information, online reservations, and billing.  Connect with me if you would like some best practices/do-overs from my perspective.  

    Be well!

    Hi Kristine,

    We opted three years ago to use our Box Office system, University Tickets to handle rentals.

    Students have the option to select from a seat map we built and then choose their locker. When lockers are close to selling out, I change this from students selecting to the system selecting the best available. This also has the benefit of holding specific lockers for a student who might need special accommodations. I normally hold 2-3 lockers for that purpose for the first few months and then gradually release them.

    This has received mixed reviews. The most common complaint normally centers on the lockers selling out quickly and the demand sometimes slowing the system (as happens with any large box office event).
