Since the demand for space far exceeds the number of lockers available, the service is on a first-come, first-served basis. Rental of lockers can be done during the following hours: Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Access to lockers is available 24 hours a day. See Locker Rental Guidelines in the Resident Handbook.

Just living here gives you a much more balanced view of other countries. Everything from lunch to laundry, is a cultural event.
