Claiming a Locker

We are excited to announce that the new online system for claiming lockers at the University of Houston Law Center is now available!
To secure your locker for the upcoming academic year, please follow the simple instructions below:

Step 1: Complete the requisite verification form on the "Claim a Student Locker" Page.

  • Be sure to correctly enter your UHID (University of Houston Identification Number) into the designated field.
  • Provide your official university email address (ending with "").
  • Carefully enter the Locker Number and Serial Number on the back of your locker's master lock, as displayed in the picture below. Ensure the Serial Number you enter follows the correct format (e.g., Q12Y34).

Step 2: Locker Confirmation

  • After entering your information accurately, click on the "Submit" button.
  • The system will validate your details and check if the locker is available.
  • If successful, you will receive a confirmation email with your locker combination. If the locker is unavailable (i.e., already claimed), you will receive an error message, and you will need to find a different locker.

Important Notes:

  • Locker assignments are valid through graduation. Students are not required to reclaim the same locker each academic year. If there is a desire to switch lockers at the end of an academic year, please use the contact information below to contact the Office of Student Affairs.
  • Lockers located near the student organization suite on the third floor (Locker Numbers 3128A – 3135A and 3128B – 3135B) have been reserved for student organizations and cannot be claimed individually.
  • Ensure you carefully follow the instructions below to open your locker, especially step 5, to avoid any issues with your locker.
