Students who do not live on campus can hire a locker for the duration of the academic year, useful for storing belongings that you don’t want to carry with you all day. Lockers are limited and are available on a first come first served basis. To obtain an off-campus locker, see Julie in the College Office (£10 deposit payable).
Mail can be collected from the lockable post boxes in the Porters' Lodge. Mail is alphabetised and placed in the box which corresponds to the first letter of your surname. A key is issued by Lonsdale Porters when you arrive to take up residence in Lonsdale College accommodation. All students, whether resident or not should check the unlocked pigeon-holes beneath the post boxes as internal mail is sent to students via this method. Parcels and bank cards are kept by the Porters for collection. A parcel list is displayed on the serving hatch window of the Lodge and parcels will be handed over on production of a student card.
